    This was my take on reinforcing the galley hatch to prevent it from warping in the sun. I added a stiffner and an additional layer of fiberglass. I plan to add an additional layer of fiberglass on inside of the the doors as well before they are cut out.

    I am not aware of warping in sun but they do take a different shape when held open for long periods of time. It is slight but noticable when you first close it. Keep it closed when not in use.

    MAke sure your stiffener does not impede your Galley. When all done’ it makes a snug fit between Galley and Hatch. Best of luck and enjoy the build.
