VCP Day Hatch
Posted by Chris Braman on Jan 15, 2007
If you have enough space between the cockpit and the rear hatch you could retrofit it with a 3in. minicell bulkhead.
I didn't find this number on the website anywhere, bu I think 12in. is a pretty good minimum between bulkheads doing the VCP hatch.
I made it 10 in., but I must not have figured in the width of the coaming. I pushed the hatch as far back and right as I could and I've only got about 1.25in between the coaming and the hatch cover. Silly as it seems, I think I didn't really figure that the 7.5 in hatch has a 7.5in hole and a 9 in diameter cover.
