The companionway hatch on my E 25 is weathered, and the veneer on top is flaking off. but otherwise, the hatch is relatively solid. There is moderate delamination in the plywood at the ends, but it seems like it should be salvageable.
Should I paint the top, after resin and fabric, or should I take advantage of what are relatively good bones. The frame itself seems solid.
I wonder if it might be a reasonable strategy to epoxy the top and attach teak veneer or solid teak battens.
Although this is a cosmetic project, I want to arrest any further deterioration.
What would you do?
