Hi - I have a grp 26 - my cabin lid is one solid piece of grp - i have fitted two runners at the front - so i can push the lid along and the front is secured in the runners.

My question - has anyone got a good system for securing the back of the lid when closed or at sea?

thank you - johnny

This is the system in my T26. The pictures are not nice because the seagulls prefer my Tiki than the monohulls!

It is very simple, and it is closed with a padlock. My cabin lids are heavy and I have had not to secure them when sailing.

Thank you!

Yes I had troubles with  gulls - and bought some 2" netting...

btw - is ne of your beams aluminium?

best Johnny

Hi, my beams are wood, but there is an aft alumninnum beam that I use for the solar panel and the swimming ladder. There are also stainless steel poles that are used for the tent.

Regards, Andrés.


Like Andres, I have never had to secure the back of the hatches while sailing. I also just have hasps and padlocks for locking the boat when not aboard, but mine attach on the inboard sides of the cabins/hatches.


Thank you!
