Re: StarCraft Sea Flite Sail Rings
jayc, if you want to email me your address, I can send you an original ring or two. I'll have to dig them out and see how many I have. I meant to use some vinyl restorer on the rings I received to see if that would soften them up a bit. My originals are still pretty supple. The PVC rings are just cut from a length of pipe. The sail is tied to the rings, and the rings are slid on to the mast before inserting it in the mast hole.
My hatch is also long gone, but I remember it quite well. Primarily, it was just a wooden square with the corners rounded to the shape of the hatch hole. The inner side of the cover protruded into the hole, so it was either a smaller piece laminated to the outer piece or the whole thing was one piece routed down to fit. Pretty sure the hinges were rather plain, and hidden by the outer part of the hatch cover. The latch was one of those spring loaded rollers like you find on some cabinet doors, though it may have been a bit larger.
