Companionway Sliding Hatch


Fred wrote January 2010 :

I removed and repaired the sliding companionway hatch last winter . . .

1. remove the fiberglass sea hood over the sliding hatch

2. remove the screws penetrating the Plexiglas into the wood slides, actually I think it is Lexan (check which material is right . . . one suitable for weight support is critical)

3. lift off the plexi panel

4. the wooden slides which travel on the aluminum side rails will now be totally loose

5. no need to remove the aluminum rails
