    Flybridge Cabinet Doors

    The small doors on the port side of my 53MY helm station on the flybridge are rotting. I need to replace them and curious if anyone else has done so. What material did you use? Plastic or wood? Where did you get them? The original doors are some type of wood painted with the hull color.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Mine are original and have not painted. They are varnished teak.

    Are your doors are painted over like ours ? And is it the laminate layers that are separating at the edges?

    We epoxied and clamped the layers back together. Then covered the surface with epoxy micro-balloon mix. , sanded and repainted. Going strong for four years now.

    Mine were painted plywood. All the cabinet doors on the flybridge were rotted beyond repair.

    Have fabricated new ones out of mahogany with biscuit joints and they are presently in the basement awaiting Bristol finish and re-install. Using neodymium magnets to hold them closed when re-installed. New stainless door pulls. Will post a pic or two when complete, hopefully in the next week.

    Mine are some type of wood laminate painted with what I assume to is Imron. I am thinking to replace with a smooth starboard material but not sure what color to use. My front doors to the flybridge storage area are of that type material probably replaced in the past. Any experience with a close match in starboard or other plastic type material to our Hatteras off white color? Thanks, Mark

    Sea Foam color is pretty close...at least to my old eyes. And I think you can get samples from the Starboard distributors.

    Be careful your magnets don't pull on your bridge compass....ND magnets are pretty intense.

    I use something similar to this. Donít have to worry about magnets.
