Bulb Seal
Adding our integrated bulb seal is highly recommended. While it also helps make the door a bit more water resistant, the biggest benefit to seal is that it eliminates all rattle between the door and returns. Seal dramatically improves the feel and finish of the door and for the relative cost should be included unless on a strict budget. Our bulb seal is pressed into a t-slot cut into the door returns so that (unlike adhesive seal) it will never peel away or need replacing.

Vented Louvers
Add vented louvers for increased air flow to the the area behind your door. Our vented louvers are cut via slightly offset parallel mills cut into the back and front of the door. This allows air flow while minimizing the amount of water blown through the door.

Replaced Icemaker Opening With Door
I had the empty hole to fill after removing a broken icemaker. I didn't want to put another one in so I researched what I could use and found Boat Outfitters website. I emailed my needs and then talked with Daliah. She asked the right questions and the whole process was easy.

I have attached the following pictures.

It all went great and it was a great price too.

Access hatch for Grady 306
Replaced the access hatch in head area with larger door from Boat Outfitters. The hatch was equal quality or better than existing Grady hatch. Built exactly as specified and worked great. Highly recommend product and service.

Fit perfectly

I am not sure what boat builders think, or don't think, but putting in access to your bilge for your live well pumps and all the thru hulls on your boat thru a 6" round pie hole, doesn't get the job done. Let Boat Outfitters manufacture whatever size REAL access door to your size. Perfect application

Custom Ordered 3 Doors
I ordered 1 of these doors first. I wasn't very happy about the 18 screws used to assemble it not counting the hinge. I called and had a custom door made using a 1" frame and eliminated 16 screws. I'm very pleased with the new one. I also ordered 2 addl. doors also with the 1" frame and I am very pleased with them as well. Be aware that if you order it online it will be assembled with many pieces and many screws. You have to call and order one custom with a 1" frame if you don't all the pieces and screws.

Response from Boat Outfitters
Great feedback - I'm happy to hear we were able to get you a door you are happy with. Our typical doors are constructed entirely of 1/2" thick material. They have returns (the part the door hits against) screwed on from the back around the opening of the door. It's worth clarifying that these screws are only visible on the back of the door. This style is by far the most cost-effective way to build a door and is how we build doors for most of the boat builders. As Bud mentions, we can instead construct the frame out of 1” material (with the frame milled to serve as the returns). This eliminates the screws on the back, but does add quite a bit of additional cost. Thanks again for the feedback and business!

Will the latch keys for a custom door match the key of a custom glovebox? I am planning on ordering a custom glovebox and a custom starboard door. If I choose the "Stainless Steel Locking" latch option for both orders, will the same key work in both latches? Or will I have to carry around two keys?
Jake B on Jun 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jake, Great question! These keys will match when ordered together.
Hi - Recently purchased sheet of Arctic White King Starboard SKU 13770-42012. What is the best way to cut the sheet and finish the edges smooth? Can I use a table saw and router or will that melt the Plastic. Thanks, Vic
Vic F on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Vic, Great Question! you can use standard woodworking tools: table saws, table routers, drills, blades and bits. Carbide router bits with two to four flutes are recommended. See the link below for additional information on working with King Starboard.
Can they be used as floor doors, can you walk on them?
Danny B on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Danny, these really ar not designed to be walked on, we do offer deck hatches that use a thicker material and have an aluminum frame for use in areas that will be walked on and I will include a link to those for you below.

Jennifer Smith on Sep 7, 0017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jennifer, The hinges on these doors are stainless steel piano hinges cut based on the length of the door. Please let us know if you have any other questions or if there is anything else we can do for you.
Can I order a door without a hinge? I would like it to pop-out and just remove it. Its in front of the outboard and really a pain to access with the door in place. I generally remove the hatch altogether to work.

Does it have to be square/rectangular? Can I send you a template to go by?
Ryan C on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ryan, Great Question!!! We have worked on many projects that aren't squares or rectangles. I attached a link to our contact us page. Let us know what you're looking for and we would be more than happy to help.
Can these doors support the weight of a pedestal seat and 200 lb adult seated?
Paul K on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Paul, Great Question!!! I don't know that you would want to walk on these let alone attach a pedestal seat to one. I attached a link to something that may be a bit more sturdy as far as being able to withstand a person standing on them. I personally would suggest attaching the seat to the deck of the boat and not on a hatch.

I hope this helps
I need a door on the outside of my travel trailer. Is the door sufficiently water resistant to keep weather and road spray from entering that compartment?
Mike_P on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mike, You can get these doors with a bulb seal on them to make them more sealed. These doors are not however waterproof. They may be more weather resistant, especially from spray and light rain. There is, however, nowhere for water to drain with these doors if it gets into the door.

I have a Boston Whaler Outrage 190 and I want to reverse the way the door opens. It is not a perfect square dimension. Can I send the door to you to deplicate and replace the hinges in the opposite side?

I have a Wellcraft 1988 V20 Steplift. I need new doors for the Battery well area on each side of the stern. There is already a lip built in. The measurements are about 13” x 16”to the outside edge of the lip. I have one door but the other blew off. What is the best way to assure a good fit? Have you made doors for this boat?
Jack R on May 31, 2018

What is the thickness of the door and frame?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, the door panels and the frame are cut out of 1/2" thick Starboard. This makes them stand proud of the mounting surface by approximately 1/2".
Are these doors waterproof with the bulb seal installed?
Steve on Aug 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Steve, this is a great question! These doors are NOT waterproof, even with the seal installed. The seal does help to keep water out, but it is certainly not a perfect seal. In fact, we do not claim any of the parts that we manufacture to be waterproof. One of the benefits of the seal is that it helps to keep the door from rattling in the frame. Thanks Steve!
