Jim, I have been studying your latest pictures with great interest. I "think" I see a "possible" problem that you might want to think about. In the most complete picture, fourth from last thumbnail, I see that you have mounted the foam right against the upper edge of the vertical hatch section, the area with the little plastic "spoiler." I did some testing tonight and I see that the lowest edge of the hatch needs about 5 inches of clearance to swing the opening arc. Are you planning some sort of access door to accomodate this geometric requirement? Obviously this would be a very good area, along the front top of the boattail, for a hatch allowing access to the latch handle and the keylock. Just thinking out loud. Wish I had time to do it right like you are doing.
