RE: Forward Hatch




I have the SJ knobs on my SJ21. They give a good seal, but I am a bit
concerned about the ability to quickly open the hatch in an emergency. That
emergency could be water or fire. A secure hatch that can be quickly opened
sounds like a good bet to me. In truth, my SJ23 has NO dogs on it right now.
The po appeared to be in the process of installing some, as holes were
drilled in the hatch and strike plates installed. That is as far as he got,
and I did not get the dogs when I bought the boat. I will no doubt have to
figure out how to seal holes in plexiglass in this project. Another option
would be to just replace the plexiglass.

Mike:

I see that you don't like the SJ knobs either.  Welcome to the club.
Have another read on the Tech tip for part numbers.  I updated it for you.
I suggest using two dogs for mechanical strength and a better seal.
