Yes they put thiers up front into the existing windows I was thinking of similar hatches to the cabins maybe larger on either side of the one round hatch. Do you think they would compromise top strength.

The links above are to hatches in the Saloon roof not the up front existing windows.
They are to small to compromise the Saloon roof strength. You will have to step over them to zip up your sail cover.

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

I also fitted 2 hatches in the saloon roof. Basically did the same as Longislandsail and I am very happy with the result. Good ventilation and you can check the sail trim from inside the saloon!

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

Hi
I have a small problem with the sliding salon-cockpit door of my Mahe 2007.
The key sometimes doesn't work. I had a locksmith make a new key which works better but still has issues. The locksmith told me the cylinder is worn inside and needs to be replaced but he did not know where to get this special model.

does anybody happen to know the tpe of this cylinder and possibly where to get one?
Thanks

But in the meantime I got in contact with FP directly and they will supply me a new cylinder for an acceptable price (30 EUR plus S&H).

On the Orana these locks are just standard Eurolocks, it the UK they are 5-10 used on most UPVC and Aluminium doors. Just google eurolocks and you will find a cheaper supplier

Hi there,

I had to re-seal my small hatches, too. I used round shaped EPDM rubber seal, with 8mm diameter.

Cost was less than $1 per hatch, and an EPDM seal should be good for many years. Just used a little contact cement for glueing them into place. The hardest part was getting off all the old glue from the grommet, as these hatches had obviously been re-sealed before by a previous owner.


This shop ships worldwide if you ask them
Rundschnur Moosgummi EPDM - online-dichtungsshop

This stuff is also available on ebay.de if you search for the term "rundschnur epdm"


On a sidenote: After the first summer in our Mahe I understand the ventilation issues. We will be adding a couple of Lewmar portlights for permanent ventilation (forward cabin, head, and window behind the cooking area). Plus two larger hatches on the salon roof like Al did.

Cheers
Rabbi

A couple of day ago I finally received the ordered parts from FP. It just took them 2.5 months to get the wrong part to me

They sent me a cylinder that I could have bougt in any hardware store around the corner for a fraction of the money... has not much in commmon with the cylinder that is used on my Mahe.

But they promised to get in touch with the vendor and get the right one to me. After the first experience I am afraid they have no records about the lock they used on the early Mahes. So stay tuned...

Re: FP Windows

Mark,

Is this the same adhesive that FP uses/used on the forward cabin windows?

Thanks

Pete

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

Hi there,

I'm looking for some curtain and moscito net for the escape hatches.
Could anyone give me the dimensions of the escape hatches? I'm not at my boat right now

Thanks!
