Just realised that I totally forgot to post the pics of the hatch repair on this one. :doh:

The photo doesn't really show the extensive cracking in the paint.
After adding a layer of carbon kevlar inside
Decided to put some floatation foam in the hatch so cut myself a pattern from blue foam. A piece of wax paper under the template to prevent it from sticking.
I didn't put quite enough mix in to fully fill the cavity after expansion. Should be enough to keep the hatch afloat if it came off though.
