Re: Wauquiez Hood 38

The Hood 38 is a very beautiful and well made boat. Perhaps it has already been mentioned, but I find having to leave the cockpit, to go below, a design flaw. On a client's boat, I built a conventional entryway from the cockpit directly into the aft cabin.

Re: Wauquiez Hood 38

SailNZ, you may be better off asking your gel coat question on the Wauquiez group in Yahoo.
TerraNova I am thinking you must be talking about the mk1, mk2 has direct access from cockpit. Tell me when you did your change did you strengthen the area between the 2 hatches as I suspect you may have a weekness. Anyway, was it a good solution?.

Re: Wauquiez Hood 38

007--Ah, they corrected that in the Mk II, then.

The one I did was many years ago. But I'm sure I still have some snapshots of it, but no scans. It was well reinforced and came out like it had been built that way. The owner was well pleased as it cured a nagging problem.

Re: Wauquiez Hood 38

007 - Many thanks for that, I've heard that the Wauquiez Yahoo group is a good resource.
Terra Nova - I was wondering what you meant, that being the case mine is the MK2 ... thankfully.

Re: Wauquiez Hood 38

Dear all. Is there any experience arount of fitting a deck saloon cq deckhouse on a Hood I or II? I know this sounds atrocious for such a beautiful ship, but I am getting on in years and it is simply that or the dreaded ODMB. I would like to get into contact with owners or outfitters who have done such a conversion. Thanks, Robert Boonzajer
