    Have one made. Update to removable door hinges.
    Core door with foam also. It will float next time.

    Let's just say that I will never partially unlatch the transom door again to allow the water to drain during wash down! Sometimes you may forget to fully latch before getting underway from Chub Cay and Nassau..... In rough seas...

    No further damage. Just a missing door.

    Glad to hear that.
    Call up the (what's left) Post shop. They may still have the tooling.
    If not, carve out a foam block, Glass it over and Finnish to fit.
    Don't forget a piece of hard red oak in the corner where the hinges screw to.
