Your doing a super clean job. That will pay off when you go to paint. Looking great

Rbob, do have any more pictures of your deck hatches.  I like how they are relatively invisible.  I need 1 in the house and maybe 3 in the cockpit.  I want to use all my glorious under deck space,  but dont wAnt to be tripping on hatches all over. 
I found a hatch builder that does custom square flush hatches,  but what you did is nicer

I have a few, they are overbuilt mainly because of one friend that weights close to 300lbs and they do not flex when he walked on them.  Depending on the size of the hatch 1/2" and 3/4" with glass in the middle may be stiff enough. 

I originally bought latches but other than the fish box I wont be using them, probably just drill a hole big enough to get a good size finger into.

Thank for sharing your work once again.  Did you install any drain on the lip that support the hatch?   Can water fill the little trough you created and spill into the compartment?

I did not install drain and I am hoping the seal does a fairly good job keeping most of the stuff out of the fish box.  Not worried about the ones in the wheelhouse.

I thought about it but talked myself out of the extra trouble (for me)  Fish in the box wont be there more than a day so if a little water ( fish slime etc) gets in there I dont think it will hurt anything.

I am getting side tracked till next Thursday, leaving tomorrow to do some shrimping in the San Juans.  That should help my attitude.

Making slow progress, rear steering station and battery box is in progress. pieces cut today and glassing them before the install.

Helm and seat boxes are done, still need to mount up the heater so the list keeps getting longer.

Good advice, Ed!  What's the status on your Great Australian?  Did you sell the hull?

Back from shrimping and not much to report for boat progress, worked on helm and fitted the fish finder and Vessel View gauge. 

Working on battery box, rear helm and storage for portable diesel tank for Wallace Heater.

Looks outstanding. You know that at some point you are going to have to get a roof on there? 😆

I am enjoying the ventilation and great lighting!  Soon as I finish up these small items I will be onto the roof, cant wait.

Weather was good and shrimping was good, easy to do just put in some catfood and send it to the bottom.

I only took one pic:
