number do you have? My 4600's door is really stout with large pin locks as well as latches
. I have not had it in greater than 12 foot seas so far, but my kids didn't seem to have any trouble with it. Where was all the water coming from? Were you taking it from the beam?
The attached picture is the original design that has changed now. The newer hulls have stairs leading from the salon deck
up and adding it modified the slider design.
