The original washboards and locker hatches on Triola had seen better days, so it was time to remake and replace them, for which I once again employed the services of Rowan Yacht Services (aka, my father!). We removed the much hated piano hinges for some traditional chunky standard bolted hinges, making yearly removal for maintenance far easier.
