Our boat had such a set up when we bought it - certainly reduced the ventilation possibilities, esp on the hook, but I think a benefit is that a boarding wave is more likely to push the hatch shut...

I hope you are OK. That sucks. I really like my ladders (no matter where I am using them) to be longer than necessary, so I can hold on to it when getting on and off. Nothing makes me more nervous...

Re: Incredible hull cleaner, dirt cheap and fast.

If true, then why are there hundreds of polishes and compounds available for automotive finishes, including the Preta products that I use on my boat? :confused:
