A Trio Of Hatches
One of my eBay bargains arrived this afternoon. Three Canpa deck hatches 21″ x 16″, they have smoked acrylic tops, 2 interior cam locking levers and multiple stayed opening positions. They will also open right back and lie flat on the deck.
They are constructed of a synthetic nylon type material and are quite light and have stickers on them indicating they were manufactured to a Lloyds Register of Shipping standard. They seem pretty strong and robust.
I have it in mind to fit one over the port side dining area, one over the forward port side bunk and one over the starboard side double berth. They should provide plenty of light and plenty of ventilation.
I’m getting a little impatient to get building again and although I know it’s a short term pain I think I’ll try and sneak a Gleda session in over the next few days just to ease my mind a bit.
