Re: acrylic dome over the companionway hatch
Weren't those things a bit popular with the early crop of single handers ? If memory serves Moitessier had one on Joshua and Blondie Hassler on Jester also.
In both cases the "domes" were simply relatively large deep wash basins that had small ports cut into them and covered with plastic. Not too handsome but perfectly servicable.
