Default Fiberglass work recommendations

I posted earlier today about putting an access hatch on the hood of the Jupiter to allow me to have easy access to the anchor locker. As designed, the anchor locker door is on the vertical wall facing the console.

The access hatch is likely not going to work because the hood has a little crown to it. It is not flat.

Anyone have an idea of what it would cost to have a quality glass guy mold in a door? Recommendations for Miami/Ft Laudy area?

Why not just cut the lid shape out of the existing deck? Use the cut out piece as the lid and the crown will be the same as the deck.

That could be done, by someone who does glass work and can mold in channels, etc...
But that's not me

Well yeah.... i didn't mean as a do-it-yourself project. I meant that it's not that difficult. The difficult part is finding someone who is as good as they say they are!
