Re: front flush hatch siz
Posted by LeeG on May 18, 2005
A lengthened standard hatch sounds like a fine solution. On the Ch16 I made the aft hatch was standard with the front bulkhead gone with through cockpit access and float bags. On a Northbay and Ch18 I put in a circular flush hatch that came to 1" from the inside edge of the sheer clamp. Thereafter elliptical hatches have become a favorite configuration by measuring out the max width/length possible then playing with string and two nails on a straight line to get the right position. Sealine had some flat long bags that worked well in conjunction with 9" diameter bags.
