Re: Swan 42 - Ron Holland Design - 1980-1985
Thank you James! Very helpful. Can't remember if I mentioned it, but as I sail offshore often with this boat, and it does extremely well in the big stuff, the leaky companionway is it's Achilles heel (now that I've ditched the wood sliding hatch on the fore deck and cured the babystay leak issue). Not even worth attempting to restore the interior varnish work around the area until it's resolved.
I am ordering an aluminum sliding hatch that seals when closed to fit.
