Re: not broke?
Posted by Mike W on Jul 5, 2004
I am 215 lbs, the hatch opening is around 7 inches from the coaming, i have a ches 17 built to the plan specs in 1999. Your questions got me to note that not only is there a crack along the deck near the gunwale, but the hatch rib broke in half in the center of the hatch, and there is some delamination as well. OH NO!!!!!! help ;-)
Check out the pics in the link - if this is not good enough, I have some better ones. - but I think you will get the full picture.
