Re: Cockpit Locker Lids

I had this done on my 1996 PSC 37 when I had it refit at PSC in NC. I cannot remember the cost but it wasn't a lot of money. I am think it was about $600.00. That is nothing in sailboat terms.

I did what Murdoch did to hatches on a C&C which had the same problem. The repair was still good when I sold her 10 years later.

Re: Cockpit Locker Lids

Water got into the plywood core of my starboard cockpit locker lid through the hinge bolts and rotted the wood in the area near the hinge bolts. When I would tighten the bolts, the nuts would just sink in. I used a small hole saw to drill out the interior fiberglass and the wet plywood at each hole leaving the thicker exterior fiberglass intact. I filled the depression with epoxy putty then redrilled the bolt holes. The holes nearest the edges had to be counterbored so that the nuts were depressed and did not strike the locker lip when the lids were closed. I did it to both the port and starboard lids while I was at it.

Re: Cockpit Locker Lids

If you have room, why not epoxy/glass in some aluminum plates into the lids, then drill and tap them for the new bolts.. then the nuts just become 'locknuts' and the whole assembly should last a long while...

Cockpit Locker Lids

The hinges on my Lazarette lids are all pulling through the lid. The bolts have pulled all the way through the lid. I need to rebuild the fiberglass and put all new bolts on the hinges.

Has anyone done this? Any advice?
