I wonder...what if I put them with opening sideways?
Opening facing out of deck or into deck then?
It doesn't seem all that practical, but has anyone tried it?
Progress is a matter of trial and error...as long as the error is not fatal.
When sailing Florida
we had forward facing hatches opened, together with open salon hatches during the sailing and the experience from that was that all bed sheets
and floor mats onboard were constantly damp because of the salty wind...and we didn't get rid of the dampness untill we washed everything in fresh water
at home in Sweden
It wasn't all that comfortable always sleeping ín more or less damp bed
