Bomar Hatch - Foward, 1987 Crealock 34

Greetings ...

The Lexan lid on this hatch needs to be resealed. I have searched the archive but no success.

I would appreciate advise on how to reseal ... steps and materials to use.

Also, does any one know the model number? I was told that it is the Heavy Duty Cast type.

Thanks, Hank

Several people have told me they tried several things with bad results until they used commercial window bedding compound, such as Dow 795. These are silicon-based adhesives. Unfortunately I found this out after re-doing mine in Lifeseal.

On my 88 34, I have these hatches: Pompanette LLC.

I'm overseas right now on a business trip, so don't have access to my archives on my home PC, but I have the Bomar instructions on how to rebed. Basically, cleaned off all the old sealant, using 100% alcohol (anhydrous) and then GE Ultraglaze (about $30/tube) and was able to rebed two hatches.

I will update this thread in about a week.

I used masking tape and a disposable plastic spoon's back to get a nice finished look.

Hi Ted and thanks.
Send when you can. Source for the GE Ultraglaze? My local hardware store does not have it.

Hank:

Here is the link to a page where I documented my various projects on our C37. Then click on bomar hatches link

"Pages - PSC Owners | Google Groups"


I bought the Ultraglaze from Bomar since they were good enough to send me tips on the rebedding. I have that posted on the above page as well.

While you are at it, check the SS bolts where they go into the AlMag cast frame. I had considerable pitting, so I switched to zinc plated hardware and also used TefGel for good measure.

Thumbs up

Hi Steve

Thanks for trying to fix my link. It appears that the use of the literal "hatches" in my URL conflicts with sailnet's attempt to create hyperlinks into their online store, messing it up. I just fixed my post so as to point to my list of various projects, requiring one more click once you get into google groups.

BTW - nice boat name for a nice boat!
