Morgan Forward Hatch Upgrade
This hatch was a solid top and let no
light through to the cabin. A rough cut
hole was made to get things rolling.
The teak frame to hold the new window
and safety bars was next. After all the
curve and radius calculations were
made the pieces were cut and test
fitted
The teak frame was drilled and put
back on the hatch to check fasteners
locations and lengths.
The teak frame is then used as the
templet to route out the finish inside
edge of the main frame.
The safety bars and teak frame are final
fitted before the glass bed is cut in to
the teak.
The wood and glass are ready for final
bedding and installation on the yacht.
This is the front view of the hatch on
the deck. As you can see it adds a
nice contrast with the existing teak on
the deck.
The view looking at the back of the
hatch. As you can see It will be tough
to hank up a line or damage the hatch.
The goal in this project was to add a little elligence to the otherwise
bland forward deck and to provide more light in the forward v berth.

..
This hatch was built on an existing cover that was blank with no window. As a result the V berth was
very dark. The conversion came out very nice and goes well with the rest of the teak on deck.
Total cost of this conversion and repairs to seals and hinges was $2,200
