DIY Series

Is there a chance that you might include a DIY project to replace a window with a pair of side doors on a narrow boat. Have I seen a mention of a DIY replacement on offer?

We may be able to include this in the future although there are no immediate plans.
In the meantime, you might be interested to know that Kedian Engineeering produces ready-made side door sets that can be installed in place of an existing window. The doors have a flange around the edge that will fit into a standard window opening and are claimed to be fully waterproof. They are supplied ready to paint in your boat--s livery.
Alternatively, you might prefer to retain all the windows or portholes and add a pair of side doors. For this, Kedian supplies sets of doors that can be fitted into an opening that has been cut in the cabin side with a jigsaw. The frame has reinforced edges to ensure that the structure is not weakened and pre-drilled holes to make it easier to install.
Kedian Engineering is based in Northamptonshire and the telephone number is 01604 511512.
