The three doors are now sanded and ready to be saturated with penetrating epoxy. Tomorrow I will coat them with penetrating epoxy giving it a coat every hour or so until it won't take any more. Once it hits that point (where the epoxy doesn't soak in anymore) the door needs to sit for a day or two. This will give the two-part epoxy paint was are using for the exterior a good "bite". They say that this paint job on the doors should last 10 years. I sure hope so.

I have the salon door frame at home so I can repair it. It took a long time to get off the boat, but I now have an easy fix that should be much stronger than the original design. I also removed the trim from the inside of the old hatch. It was bedded with some really goopy adhesive that didn't want to let go. I had todestroy the wood getting it removed. But it's gone now.
