Attention Mosquitos...No Trespassing!

Just thought I'd share another piece of Frank's ingenuity.  Up until now, we haven't been able to keep our hatches open at night due to overzealous mosquitos and No-See-Ums (tiny evil little bugs that bite and leave itchy little bumps all over you...they're so small that you can barely see them, hence the name) and mosquitos.  Well, Frank decided that enough was enough, and built these clever screens to go over all of our hatches.  We bought all the material from Home Depot and he hand-cut them to size and rounded the edges to fit into our hatches.  They are held in place with dowels set into some drilled holes.  They look great, as if they came with the boat.

  1. Love those. Ours forward hatch (over the v-birth) is seriously odd that way. The way the bracket for the hatch is built, you can't have the mosquito panels in place at the same time since the bracket extends down past the netting. Not sure how that was ever supposed to work.
