Re: Hatch Frames
Posted by Vannessa on Mar 24, 2006
Yes, the ribs on the underside of the hatch cover. I figure I will place one in the very center, and the other two equidistant both fore and aft, with the shortest of the 3 pieces aft. This arrangement would delineate the cover into 4 quarters. When I float the ribs in the hatch opening, this eye-ball measurement seems to work. I know to leave rooms for the gasket tape, I'm just unsure at what points along the centerline each rib should be placed for optimal fit. I eye-balled the ribs too close together on my forward hatch, and they probably should have been at least 2.5" farther apart.
