This is the new companionway door sliders for my sailboat Aspettami. The last picture in this series shows the original bifold doors. I desided to go with a more secure sliding panel style. There are three panels, each slide down overlaping the other. Oncethe hatch is pulled over the top and locked, they cant be raised. The styles and rails are mahogany and the panels are cedar.

Very nice, a definite improvement in seaworthiness over the bi-folds.
Seems to be the year to re-do companion ways, I just did mine too.

looks like an O-day 24 ????

Great job.

My dad used to do class racing and fit out his 18’ Buccaneer with teak trim and many custom features years ago… it was really nice boat… I wish I had it today.

OK, now I’m beginning to sense you’ve done this type of work before. Very nicely done!
