I have a S2 8.0. The opener on the front hatch is missing the knob closer that allowed the hatch to stay propped up. I've seen them on other boats and it is a squat cylindrical knurled piece of stainless steel that fits over the threaded female rod part of the lever arm.
Short of replacing the entire lever arm, does anybody know where I can get a replacement closing device?
There is a photo of the lever arm at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/13638962@N03/1392120093/
