    Forehatch Latch Saga

    . First, I put a single latch in the middle of the hatch (similar to original). Worked well, but it wouldn’t really dog down the hatch because of the curve of the hatch coaming.

    Next, I put a catch on each end, but the hatch stay hit the port side catch so I moved it slightly inboard. Well, that worked, but it put everything under strain and it was ugly. I changed the style of catches from the lever type (no adjustment except to reposition the catches) to the the screw down types. Works lovely, but ow I have 18 unused holes in the hatch coaming and nine in the hatch itself. Using a piece of western red cedar, I fashioned a nice shape to go all the way across. Should look good and work well.

    Here is the holey lid . . .

    Oct 2006

    The latest report from our Aussie correspondent, Geoff Flydes arrived back at the end of October. A bit late getting it posted do to our Med cruise and recovery (posted elsewhere), happening just after we got the letter. We'll begin with some updates on the interior starting with the final version of the forward hatch (see post 144 above)

    "When I modernized – or changed – the plumbing, it didn’t occur to me that I could mount the freshwater pump upside down. That eliminated the need for a floor in the little compartment and the elimination of all those elbows, hose clamps and potential leaks. All the stiff I took out is spread in front of the job."
