I lost the link where you build the hatch and tear then cut the hatch away. That's the way I am building mine. Why am I doing this? Because I cannot put the hatch on afterward. Still have to figure out how to get all the sealing and stuff done without moving it. Maybe someone could find it for us.
Not to perpetuate your hi-jacking of the thread, I used this picture for Chris' benefit, something about the truck in the background upsets him.

My thought is that having the hatch extend over the wall does not add much to the Bernouli effect but DOES create turbulence--which you addressed with the trim line extending around the cabin, matching that of the hatch.
Bingo! That is what my crazed mind was thinking about but had not connected to the idea of the trim line to lessen the turbulence.
I will continue to think and look. I would like to know how you did your weatherstripping etc.
Thank you again, Everyone! This is a fantastic board--great teaching and support....great place to kill bad ideas, too <G>
