Finally got the floor down. But as I was driving the floor panels up to the boat it rained like crazy and the ply got all wet. So now I have to wait till the ply drys up real good before I can lay the fiberglass. But I have lots of other work to do while it drys out. New hatch fit perfect too.. I'm going to hinge the side by the transom and use gas springs to hold it open. That way the wife can grab the fenders easily... lol
Picture of the aft bilge its under the new grate I made so nothing can interfere with its operation.

Looks awesome. Are you putting a trim around the hatch? I also brought my wood floor all the way to the transom. And then sanded cone shape channel right into the scuppers. Need a day to be about 60 to glass. Its been cold again.

Its hard to see but I routered a gutter into the hatch frame. The hatch seam is right over the gutter so the water should find the path of least resistance and run out the gutter. The gutter empties out into the rear scupper trough you see in the pictures...

Finishing the hatch at home, Working on new sliding doors, Installing new door slam latches, fixed the bottoms of the combing panels that have the electric outlets and pulled the gutter and epoxied the seam. Waiting to get the boat outside to fiberglass the cockpit deck but I need a good weather window.

Here are pictures of the teak doors with new slam latches and also the hatch with non skid applied. The hatch just needs one final coat of gelcoat over the non skid and it will be finished.

Thanks guys. I attached a picture of the nonskid after the final coat of gelcoat... Definitely need to leave the tape in place till the nonskid has been sealed with a top coat. My roller was still picking up some of the nonskid even though I vacuumed the surface before the final coat...

I like the non skid trimming. I thought about doing the same thing but decided not to just for simplicity. Lol
