The one big thing I did that was a huge improvement, was adding that seahood. Had to go to an English boating book to get plans- NONE of the American authors had anything comparable- all just addon's that screwed to deck fiber glass shells. Book called "Yacht Joinery and Fitting" by Mike Saunders

Oh and reducing the opening to 24 inches instead of the original 32 inches- you could fly a helicopter thru the original :)

The tops are balsa cored 1/2 inch thick pieces.

That's a lovely Hood!  Also to add a bridge deck, IF not already featured, is a major improvement in seaworthiness of a vessel. In fact, should be mandatory on anything but day sailors ;-)
