Re: Companionway Sliding Hatch Removal
My Cal 2-27 does the same thing. Part of the problem seems to be that the hatch on my boat is just a single piece of fiberglass, so it's so light that it can vibrate and act as its own sounding board as it slides. The hatch is sort of corrugated, so I've been thinking of adding some wood between the ridges, and/or add some thin strips of stainless to the "slides", to dampen some of the sound.
Here's a pic from another 2-27:
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
