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

    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 😁

    I like the top one too.  Very classic look.

     

    To finish the look add a king plank.  It's work, but is beautiful.

    It would probably be better if you used a notched 'king plank' or joined the planks at the center-line herringbone fashion to avoid feather edges, also nib the short planks on the inside of the decks into the 'covering boards'

    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 vote for no. 3 in the multi-foto post. Elegant, balanced, classic.

    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 😉
