I have a Jeanneau
Sun Odyssey 469. It has companionway
doors which open outwards as opposed to storm boards. I bought a Jordan Series Drogue
which received high praise in many quarters, in case I run into some bad weather
, but as everyone knows it is designed to hold the stern to the sea. That means waves could come into the cockpit
, and while water
can drain out of the swim platform gap pretty quickly, a wave smashing into the companionway
doors would well buckle them in.
Has anyone had any experience with helping the doors sustain rough conditions? I might be able to make a wooden cover which would somehow cover the doors and absorb the brunt of an impact, but not sure how best to mount it or if there are better ideas out there.
