- Nov 30, 2007Thanks Mason,
If "the slides lie outside, or aft, of the bulkhead, and go in
rabbetted frame-pieces?", I guess that means the slides don't finish
flush with the ply in the bulkhead?
Thanks for the tips re the hatch rails, I know one thing, nothing will
be glued until all is working!

outside, or aft, of the bulkhead, and go in rabbetted frame-pieces?
However you do the slots, be sure to carry the hatch-rails aft as far
as necessary to cover the edges of the slides. Tricky.
