Turtle Deck Opening

Posted on Updated on

I happened to have a piece of 1/8″ plywood scrap that was the perfect size to make a panel for the turtle deck opening. After cutting it out and varnishing it I think it looks great.

The slots are for the seat belt shoulder harness.

This does sick out past the rear spar carry through so I glued a block to take up the gap.

To hold the panel in place I glued a tab on the back of the top.

Two studs were added at the bottom to hold the panel in place.
