Skeeter Beaters - hatch covers

Anyone out there using mosquito net hatch covers?
Recommendations?

CS30 vee berth needs one, and our local chandlery stopped carrying
the ones they offered because of lead content....

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

If you have a sample you can substitute crushed walnut shells for the lead, not has heavy but should work

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion...
There is a great Chandlery near us, The Store, owned by Lori Mason.
I found the model that I was preferring, manufactured by Sogeman.
It was also on sale, so I got a great deal at $49.00 for a 25 x 25.

I used it last Saturday night, with winds that were pre-Irene at about 30K, and it held just fine.
The fresh air was wonderful.
