Miss Grace is back in the shop under the knife. First up, cut out the original live well and make the bilge access much larger.

When the first build was done the door would open into to the cockpit like this because at the time we were leaving the rear boxes in the corners. As the build progressed we removed the boxes and the door was completed and I never adjusted the swing. I cut out the interior gunnel and will be creating a pocket for the door so it opens 180 degrees onto it's hinge.
