Building your own (leakproof!) classic hatch

"One day at the Oakland Yacht Club we saw a very beautiful all-wood sailboat that had an extraordinarily beautiful butterfly hatch made of teak and glass. We know that the classic butterfly hatch has a nasty reputation of leaking like a sieve, so we decided to design and build a hatch that captured the beauty of the old butterfly hatch but had the integrity of a one-piece unit."
