New bow hatch coming along

I've finished all the epoxy work for my new bow hatch and am now finalizing the priming and painting. This job won't be too pretty up close, but from normal distances she'll be just fine. I used an epoxy prime coat as a fairing agent and topped with Brightside. Next, I can mount the darn thing and call this project done.

I used epoxy to build up the sides, with rope to provide strength and fill. I only needed about 1/8 inch on all sides to fit the hatch, but this will give some more strength and rigidity to the area.
