Re: Swan 42 - Ron Holland Design - 1980-1985

Would anyone be able to forward the dimensions of the top opening of the companionway hatch on a pre 1985 Swan 42? Thanks.

If you are interested in the sliding acrylic version on a 1981 42, Yes. Which
particular dimensions?

Fore & aft from the fwd vertical teak face to the back side of the ss plate that keeps the washboard, and athwart; from inside both vertical teak faces (1 measurement) and also between the 2 vertical GRP surfaces outboard of the track that the acrylic hatch slides on (2nd measurement). This 2nd measurement would be slightly more then the width of the acrylic hatch glass. Many thanks for this!!

Sorry for the delay on this I have been away from the boat. Its not quite clear to me, do you want the size of the actual hatch, IE acrylic sheet plus add ons
or do you want the internal size of the companionway hatch opening plus slide
dimensions.

Thanks for the reply. Hope you had a nice Holiday! What I need are he dimensions of the opening: fore&aft from inside the teak (fwd) and to the inside of the stainless parts that hold the washboard. Athwart: inside the teak verticle trim (that the acrylic slides on). Thanks!

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.
