    Thank hightechmarine . I noticed that you did not used the conventional types of trim tabs but those that slide out ( don't know what these are called ) Whats your impression about them ?

    Ocracoke 20 in OZ

    I cant figure it out but as a gutter it is too shallow . The gutter would be at least 1" deep and 1" wide with pockets for the water drain fitting

    A small update. Console top ( compass holder ) ready and fitted. And a face-lift to the cockpit seat ( bench ) as it looked more like a vintage writing desk than a boat seat !!

    Synthetic teak ready ! I went for the King-plank type but but with pointed corners for more modern look . Thanks for all your opinions guys , it made a difference 😉

    I made some cardboard drawing for the decking I like the kingplank design and is professional but it looks too classic for this boat The herringebond type looks fine but for some reason I cant place the center line ( where planks meet ) in the center !! Not sure about the other 3 designs 😕 ???

    I`ve decided to cover the front deck (passage), the 2 steps and the driving platform with synthetic teak . the advantage over solid wood is its lightness and it is maintenance free ! But still confused which strip direction looks better for my boat !! Any thoughts are much appreciated 😁

    Front hatch locking mechanism and hinges . Using a sunroof lock from an old Landrover freelander !! Fortunately this type of lock has stainless steel shaft and springs The hinges are bent to the shape required The hatch door itself is cut from a 10mm acrylic sheet and close on to an 8mm self adhesive D rubber profile
