My friendly advice is to dedicate some time first to really, really clean her. It's amazing how much more positive the outlook is once the dirt is gone. Then you can start fixing things

Of all the boats I have owned, the cockpit lockers on all except one (British Westerly 25) were like yours including my current CS27. As long as the hatches are sealed with the foam shown in a previous post they will be fine. Make sure there are positive latches to keep them tightly closed against the seal.
The picture was taken before you cleaned the boat, wasn't it?

hey hello Brian
yes the photos taken when I first got the boat, she will be like new by next week. thans for the info and advise, I will put some latches and seals.

I find it odd that a boat built for blue water have such lose hatches, shurly they have big waves in ingland right?

Maybe that's why some boats sink Now I'll do the same on my boat, it has no seal, not latch, the water just runs out, but only when healing to port. Good design. Really good design.

Re: cockpit lockers...need advice!

I believe this is on topic, I recently aquired a new vessel a Vanguard 33' . Dinette arrangement, which I believe I am going to gut the dinette and customize this space with a desk and wall mounted flatscreens on the forewal. removing the table and replacing it with a dropdown table on hinge or something similar to open up the space when inslip/anchored and working and secure the open shelf portside of the cabin. However this is all probably for another thread. The reason I am here is this..

If you look at the dinette image, the quarterberths extend beyond a lipped wall with openings to the last ~30%, ok normal so far, but it appears that any original partitions or liners from that point back are removed, this allows direct access to the aft locker and around to the other side from both berths, also there are no locker compartments from the cockpit access hatches allowing flow through access to the the entire lower aft region when locker doors are open. I have been tracking down as many images as possible of these design to see how the originals or any modified arrangements are outfitted, but while there is a decently sized community am still having problems getting the info I need...

my thoughts, molding new draining cockpit lockers and mounting them in place, adding a partition to the rear area with access doors effectively seperating the aft locker from the berth area and allowing for some additional storage beyond the end of the bed. and adding seperating/access panels to the interior side of each berth seperating it from the controls/wires/manual-bilge/etc currently exposed.

Any thoughts on this subject are greatly appreciated:
locker construction methods?
partition construction methods?
secure storage access panels?
practicality of design ideas?
things I may not be thinking of?

its a bigish project but when completed will allow much more segregation of my storage and access/sleeping arrangements in the aft section. Which in turn opens up much more space in the main cabin for the beginning project and others...

cheers,
slax
