Progress on the hatch lips.

Today I got the spacers for the hatch lips fitted, and the hatch lips themselves cut to size and ready to get their final fit. I will glue up the spacers tomorrow and should have the hatch lips finished by the middle of next week.

Forward hatch lips and spacers (above). The hatch lips have been fiberglassed on both sides earlier, and the spacers have gotten a coat of epoxy on all surfaces, with special attention be paid to the open grain on the edges.
Half of the hatch lip and spacer for the aft hatch, in place and ready for final dry fit. The spacers are all ready for epoxy. It is just the lips that need their final adjustments.
