the hatches for the cabin on the plans have been substituted for the ones used by scott williams and thomas neilson on both of their builds,the ones with the ss tube as a guide,they look neat but are they the best of both types of hatches?
How do I lock my hatches from the outside? I met a guy in Richards Bay, South Africa, who came over the Pacific and Indian Ocean and his hatches were just held by gravity. His mast was a lamp pole from Malaysia. He returned safely to UK. But his girl friend left him and took a plane back home.
Now how do I lock my fore and aft hatches. They must not lock accidentally when I am inside, but it must be possible to lock them storm proof from the outside, and burglar proof as far as reasonable also.
