Hi all Steve here owner of mixed spirit. Just an update she is now on the hard and being prepped for anti fowl and painting. I have been to work on the inside and it has been in a big mess I'm afraid it's going to be a gut out job. I will send pictures real soon. Does anybody know if we can still get stern hatch covers mine has gone. Also I need a plan of the interior to restart. I quite like some of the more purpose built modern interiors if anyone has one I would be very grateful The inside will need a good steam clean after I have stripped it all. That should be a nice job. Not lol. Any other help and suggestions as ever gratefully appreciated.

Wouldn't be too hard to make a mold out of plywood and glossy Formica and lay up a glass hatch cover. Where the sides meet the top in the female mold you can use Bondo and do fillets or easier, modelers clay and a flat stick rounded off with a belt sander to make the fillets. Wax the Formica well and start laying up wet fiberglass. When cured just tear the mold off. The clay cleans up easily. You'll have a super slick part. I'd put a little curve in the top to make it stronger and less flexible when someone stands on it.
