Companionway Updates

I got some new bits on the boat today. The hatch on the Newport 16 is basically just a cover that sits on top, nothing to hold it down. So I got a couple of Sea Dog hatch hinges that have a removable pin in case I do want or need to take it off. I also got a twist type hatch adjuster to hold it open which will make it a lot easier to grab things from down below without climbing all the way in. At 6'3" the cabin is awfully tight so I like to just lean in. But then I don't quite clear the hatch with my back if I put a knee on the companionway sill, I had to move very slow and it was quite a pain.

You can also just see the new drop board bits I built which I'll get pics of later.
