Re: Forward Hatch




Mike,

I ordered my new hatch from Alan Cesany in early July.  His website address is attached and he is located in Florida.  I have copied him on this email for your reference and for his.  Alan was very helpful in advising me of the best size and type of material to use and cut and finished the hatch to size including the hole for my Nicro vent.  His principal business is yacht window replacement.

Regards,

Doug Murray

Mike,

I am travelling right now but upon my return home next weekend, will email
you the contact particulars for a company in Florida which provided a
replacement hatch.  It is 1/2 inch dark smoked glass (see the tech tip).
Much, much stronger although you will have to shim the hinges up a little to
get the correct compression on the seal.  I will replace my seal (Gene
provided mine) and provide the height specification for the shims in the
spring when this winter makes its exit.

Regards,

Doug Murray

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.

Tech Tip

that
    
the inner handle used is the Part #1731 - 1994-Present handle
      
w/post,
    
"O" rings, lock, screw. The outer handle should be Part #1727 
1994-Present Exterior latching handles. Right? Also, are two
      
dogs
    
needed, one at each corner, or would one in the middle of the hatch
      
provide a watertight seal?
    
Thanks,

Mike H.
