Hinges for decking

Post by mogfisher » 12 Aug 2009, 22:27

I was just wondering what folks are using for hinges for the doors in their decking. I'm about to start decking my 1442 and would like to use a hinge that is not visible from the top but I'm not sure what to use. A stainles piano hinge seems the easiest but the top of the hinge will be visible and I don't want that if I don't have to. I'm going to go sift through some of the modded boats on here but I figured I'd ask too. Thanks for the info!

I actually planned to post this question later on! I need to find a bass boat to tear into to get to the bottom of this question, cause I hate seeing hinges and screws..

those are the hinges I was trying to avoid but they really do seem to be the best fit for the application. i found some really nice fully hidden ones that are stainless but they are like 80 bucks each and you would need at least 2 per door. Not happening. So I guess it's gonna have to be stainless piano hinge. thanks for the input.
