Very cool Wayne! I might be interested in the cockpit and foredeck hatches. I can't find them on craigslist anymore. Do you have pictures?

My companionway hatch and boards seem to be in pretty good shape. The teak trim boards around the companionway need replacing though... You didn't happen to snag those did you?

No, i don't have the trim boards. i was going to modify mine to be straight across on the bottom and eliminate the bottom horizontal trim board. it just seems to collect water and creates leaks. David did a nice job modifying his sill.
here are some pics.

D3 - I can vouch for Wayne and his prompt shipping. I purchased teak companionway hatch slides from him last year.

As a matter of fact, I might be interested in purchasing the portside lazerette hatch. What's your price Wayne? Any idea on shipping? My lazerette hatch is starting to crack and get pretty flimsy. I thought about building new wooden hatches, but that means more upkeep and I think they don't look as good as the OEM parts.

Could be the camera angle. I'll measure them tomorrow for you.

companionway hatch

Well I can understand how you are having leakage at the companionway.

I finally changed the hatch boards I had to 1/2" Lexan, 3 pc. ship-lath. I love the change but I made that change to allow light into the cabin as part of my never ending battle against the dark and evil forces of mildew.

Here's what I can find of that modification. I originally made copper to line between the molding where it is laminate and later made it of st.stl. I have better pix somewhere, but can't locate them rat naw.

The bottom was key, no more scuppers drilled into a water trap!

d3lphi:

I measured the cockpit hatches. They are 31 1/2" long, 15" wide at one end and 11 3/4" wide at the other end.

d3lphi & Kevin:

I just want to recoup my price on the cockpit hatches. I'll send the set (2) for the cost of shipping and you can add whatever you think they are worth to you.
I want to keep the deck hatches because they fit my boat. I also need to sell the sliding hatch.

hatch-boards.

I remade my old boards of lexan but I think Plexi would be good as well, it's just that the local glass guy had lexan dropped from a previous job. There are times we're forced to retreat below and having mo' light below is good. I have not yet added latches to the lower for use as stormboard, I will someday.

Do you still have boat?

I have a Helms 25 at Benbrook Lake in Fort Worth. It is sailable, but it needs painting, missing hatch covers and pads, etc.

Are you still working on yours? Do you have any specs, etc.? Any tips on painting, etc.?
