Re: Sexual Orientation of her Flaps

Some open either way.

Since we mostly anchor bow to the wind, I like forward opening flaps. Doesn't matter offshore as then they are shut.

Re: Sexual Orientation of her Flaps

thanks for all the advice!

due to popular opinion i have mounted all the hatches facing forward,massive improvement in light and ventilation,even though the wind is currently coming from astern on the dock
