Default Banana 24 restoration progress

Hey guys, I am rebuilding a banana 24 and have scanned some pics of the progress. I am getting ready to rig the gimbal, drive and engine in the coming weeks.

I need help with the cabin doors. I bought the 3/4" marine plywood and I am going to have my trim carpentar cut out the doors, like the shape of the old ones. I am all ears for better suggestions. I don't really want to have any visible wood on the boat. Also I am kicking around the idea of a fiberglass fairing. I will post more pics as I move along
