Scupper drain hose

Don't forget to replace the plastic scupper hoses. They get old and brittle, then crack and sink the boat.

Paul,

I see you are on this link as well. You have a good hull...glass in that silly hole they call a hatch....and go to Lowes and buy some Spa hose for the cockpit drains...be sure to cross them...port to starboard thru hull...starboard to port thru hull, DOUBLE CLAMP both ends, and your hull is, darn near...sink proof...take care of this stuff, before you get into the REAL money...

Nice job Dude!!!!
There's always a better way. You found it. That plastic hatch always scared me when I was offshore.

American Spirit 23 Hatch

The forward hatch, though weak, is one of the things I like about the boat. My MacGregor 25 has a normal hatch and I like the fact that people in the cabin of my new NA23 will be able to see where we're going. I'm going to make a new fiberglass version for strength. I may even put a small porthole in it.

Today, I trade my 1981 Mac and some cash for my "new" 1977 NA23. It's Christmas on November 14th! I love the look of the NA23. In an hour, I'll have one!!!
