Yup, it is my hatch which I built straight out of Bud MacIntosh'
book"How to Build a Wooden Boat".The text is clear and the drawings by
Sam Manning are,well as usual, outstanding! Even I was able to make
sense of them :-)
The picture Bruce links to was taken by a visitor,Mark, who was at
that time sorta considering building a Micro up on the Ottawa river
and paid me a visit.....he even brought along a wee bottle(bless his
soul!) of fortified grape juice!
Some other shots are available of the hatch here:
?b=1&m=t&o=0 and of course,right in our own files under MICRO, in
the "Lenihans' Micro" folder.
I chose to build my hatch the way I did since I figured the boat was
flat and square enough and a wee bit of yachty looking hatch crown
couldn't hurt :-) Bolger liked it too when he came on board down in
Newport during the Woodenboat show in 1993(!)
It was an easy thing to build,with Buds' book as a guide, and did
wonders for the boats looks :-)
Peter Hatchbuilder Lenihan..............:-D !!
