Re: SJ23 - Forward Hatch




Hi Mike,

I wish I could show pictures of this, but I have not completed the
installation (Time is the only factor). I had a teak riser(spacer frame)
made to adapt a Bomar hatch to the SJ23. The outside of the riser was the
exact size of the current hatch plastic which still allows for some deck
drainage. The inside of the teak riser was cut using the inside hatch flange
as the pattern. The installation will be to remove the original weather seal
and clean the area, place the riser and the hatch into position,
through-drill the teak and deck using the mounting holes on the hatch frame
as the guide, then seal and thru bolt the assembly to the boat. Final step
is to install the plastic trim ring from inside the v-berth. While I have
not installed it, I have test fit the new hatch.....it will work.

Hope this helps.....one more suggestion.....put a solar powered vent into
the hatch before installing.
