Excellent, thanks!

I tried all kinds of search terms but of course I missed to search for the obvious term "head"

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

The 'glazing' (rubber gasket surround) on our sliding glass doors is bulged out in places and torn at one point and needs replacing as the doors won't slide shut properly. Suggestions on whom might perform this work? Auto glass repair dealers, etc.? I'm currently in Fort Pierce, FL.

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

Our hatches have crazing on the perspex. In hindsight, we should have had hatch covers made to protect them from the elements.

It would be good to somehow buff the windows, rid the crazing and make them nice and clear again.

Any ideas on how we could do this?

cathnath,

Sometimes its much easier to just replace the hazed over hatch windows.

If your willing to put in the time and effort than you can try a polishing kit.

The ones I have tried have worked for a year or two and than the hazing came back and I ended up replacing the hatch window anyways.

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

One hatch lever in our stbd head is 'very' hard to move. Tried WD 40, PB Blaster; no go. Anyone with any ideas on why this should've happened?

We have the same (but opposite problem.). Our hatch handle has gone very loose but we have tried removing it unsuccessfully. We have a replacement kit but can't get the original off since it looks like the parts are corroded together. May have to drill the whole unit out but worried about damaging the hatch. Ideas appreciated!

Re: Hatches, Windows and Ventilation

Our Mahe is in the BVI and I'd love to make these screens up in the off-season. Any chance you have a scan/pdf of the hatches I can use to make up templates?

1) Make a cardboard template using your boat hatch

3) Trace template onto a sheet of 1/2 thick Azek
4) Cut 1/2 thick Azek sheet with a jig saw
5) Slice the 1/2 Azek hoop into 2 half’s using a saw or sheet rock knife
6) Cut a piece of screen to size
7) Contact cement both half’s of now 1/4 thick Azek
8) Apply the screen to one side and then put the other side on and clamp to dry
9) Cut any excess screen sticking out
10) Contact cement on the D rubber seal
11) Screw on a strap handle

They look better than the factory screens

Sorry, I do not have a PDF file. I just traced the boat hatch. They are very easy to make from a cardboard template
