Re: Tips on Watch Standing

hatches--i have doors, no problem...
overhead hatches are mostly not considered...they ARE important ..can keep water out when and if you are knocked down.
there was a boat lost in pacific some years ago--overcanvassed on the pacific side of cedros island -- knocked down and never seen again nor heard from. no epirb, just gone. no call out for help--just gone. btw--was a baba 30. sailing with overhead hatches open and knocked down..bye bye....
