replacing hatch covers


Recommended Posts

You can.  Just make sure the curvature of the deck isn't too great.  I've done two boats on the rear deck, one with the Maricat curved base and one without.  The one without just needed a bit more Sikaflex to bed it down.  Get a rubber glove and run your finger over the bead to smooth it down.  If you put enough on it squeezes through the screw holes.

One front one I did I screwed and bolted each of the holes, must have cost me about $40 in screws and bolts!  Didn't need them at all, once the Sikaflex sticks there's not much that'll shift it.

The BCF ones are cheap and cheerful and about half the cost of Ronstans.
