Default Anyone rebuild the ski locker hatch?

93 2200 SR. Was missing original when I received. Looks like maybe it was Teak from factory?

Am thinking of either 1/2 or 3/4 Starboard (with some fancy routing designs) or wood with gel coat?

Any suggestions?

Teak is naturally water resistant, and a natural non skid material, which is why it has been a traditional decking material for many, many, many years. Wood is easy to work with and looks good, even with out any fancy design work. Starboard looks like....well....PLASTIC. It is waterproof, but can get slick when wet. Starboard is very flexible, unless it is very thick. A very thick piece of starboard will most likely cost as much as equivalent teak.

You can rip and join teak with a table saw and a biscuit cutter, then glue it and clamp it 'butcher block' style and it will look great. That is my vote, but it depends on what tools and wood working skills you have.

Teak does look good. I will probably take your advise and hunt for some teak scraps.
Thanks

Would anyone mind snaping a couple of pictures of theirs? That would certainly help.

It most likely looked like this originally:

If someone could take a pic of the under side or even sketch up how the bottom should look to hold up to someone standing on it with only a 3/4" edge holding it in place, that would be great!

I was able to find several teak hatches on ebay. Turns out, there is a bit of a standard size of these things! go figure.
$120.00, looks like new!
