My boat is moored 6 month or more of the year. I wanted the outboard completely out of the water when docked to eliminate corrosion / Sea Growth. The motor is mounted with a 4 setback manual jackplate.

Door is installed for test fit. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, not perfect but better than the old one. The green coating is the PVA, it washes off with water. Window was installed using the old door as a pattern.

Installed the blue sea add a battery system. The switch is run in the on position, both batteries are charged when charging voltage is available. During discharge they are separated so your starting battery  will not be drained.

It was a tight fit but happy with the result. This is the starboard rear transom hatch. I build a fiberglass bracket to install the Blue Sea battery combiner and on off switch

I glassed both sides of 3/4 piece of plywood core to fill hole. Once faired it was finished with a krylon paint job. High build primer filled by antique white top coat. Close enough.
