Re: HATCH DOOR REPAIR WITHOUT REMOVING THE HATCH

Hi Slavko,

I just put it on with contact cement. I allowed the cement to dry on both surfaces and the carefully applied the laminate. I used a laminate roller, like a paint roller, but much harder, to make sure the laminate was completely secure. Contact cement is very strong and once attached it is almost impossible to remove or change the position.

It has been on for 8-10 years and no problems.

You need to make guides on either side of the area where the companionway enters the slot so you can get a router level and get right to the edge. It is shown in my photos. The rest is rather simple.

Hi Eric,

I was thinking to do the same but the carpenter  I asked for advise said that I would need to use a press to glue veneer to the hatch. So hatch have to be removed. How did you do it? It looks great.

Thank you for reply.
