That was another option but I think that it may be more difficult due to having to add drainage, second inside wall, and all that?

How about a fabric zipper out door.
Save some weight.

Thought about that but A) it seems like a PITA to put on each time and B) it offers no security.

Cabin!? You don't need no stinking cabin!

Cabin = added weight, added weight = slower speeds. Jon, tell Pam that cabins are over rated and just cut a hole in the deck, put in a big hatch and drop your crap in!

The door is made out of thin plastic similiar to starboard. It simply slides up rails into the headliner. The hard part is making the rails for the door to follow. The door is rattle free and light.
