Twilight Zone's Trip to Hawaii

"A number of modifications to the Stock Merit 25 are visible in this photo. Most important was the main hatch modification. The standard sliding hatch cover does not seal well and is prone to leak through the front and sides, so it was replaced with a 9.5 mm (3/8") plywood deck. Adding a lexan dome to this deck provided the necessary stiffness, and a good way to keep track of things from below. The aft 30 cm of the plywood deck was hinged with a continuous plastic hinge strip to allow more space in the companionway in good weather."
