Islander 30 Bahama latch

Does anyone have an image for how the forward hatch on the Bahama worked? Mine just has a spring leftover from the mechanism and I can't figure out a way to make the thing stay open.

It is just a piece of plexi and I don't see any place where an arm would have attached. It may have been replaced and the arm taken off I am not really sure. Right now I am using a spray bottle to hold it open for air but its not the classiest of solutions.

the originals did not have an arm to hold the hatch open, at least on my 81. I use an old seat cushion. I just have not looked at getting an arm yet.

Bummer. I thought maybe the spring that was up in the hatch was part of an arm. That spring must be for the door or something else.

I will start keeping an eye out for something. Right now I use a spray bottle to hold it open. Does not look the best but it works.

I want to get it so I can open it up more so the windscoop can shovel some more air into the boat. But I want to make it so I can put the scoop behind the window so I can close it without having to take the windscoop down.

Mine has an arm the has a knob to turn which holds it open. One thing you might try is cutting a one by piece of wood to the most open hieght you would want. Then cut some notches for a couple lower spots in case you to lower it some and still leave some room for air to come in. You will also need a slot for the bottom to rest on the frame of the hatch.

if you look at a couple of catalogs, there were braces that used a spring with a bracket on the hatch and boat. they hold the hatch about half way open, then to close you push the middle of the spring and it bends in half. There is no reason you can't add an arm with a knob like above, just drill the holes and mount.
