    Posted: 02 April 2016 at 23:30
Hi, I am the new owner of hull #8 from 2007. The boat is well held and mostly in original condition. But as a previous wood boat owner, there are two issues I might be a bit too hysterical concerned about. . . These are protection of endgrain of plywood that I find missing several places and a lot of inaccessible hidden voids that I would like to get easy access to.

What are the experiences from other boats here?
Is there reason to be concerned?

I have just cut a large inspection hole in the aft bulkhead to be able to inspect the stearing arrangement. I would appreciate any tip about where it is wise to have additional inspection hatches or openings. Special if any has made nice cutouts in the floor where there are no access and the floor plywood cannot be dismantled because of walls on top of it.

There are many places that now only can be checked with a tiny inspection camera, but I would like to get a hand in and also have the opportunity to use the places for storage.

Regards, Paal Fredrik.

Hi Lykke,

Just to confirm your observation, there are a number of unused hidden space in all Hanse modells. These can be found by making inspection hatches. Just make sure you do not cut into any vital parts. There are a few older postings here that will give you some ideas about extra hatches and opening up the the floor. About the end wood, this has not been a problem on my previous Hanse or the Hanse that I own today.

Cheers

Hello, by interesting link. You changed your compressor to water cooling without changing the compressor? How is the result? How much did that cost?

Thank you Idelfix, I have already had good use of your Dropbox.
 
This is my first hole cut in the new boat.... size made to fit a plastic hatch. Not big enough to get my head in, but was able to check stearing arrangement by hand and a pocket camera.
Wondering why there have not been an easier access to these vital parts from factory. Know they should be maintenance free, but .....

Cutting my way through the boat....
 
These are parts of what I did take out of the boat last Winter:
 
 
 
There are a lot of voids that can be turned into useful storage space around. I am special happy With this new shoe storage in the fore cabin:
 
 
I did originally planned to make some drawers here, but the inner lining towards the hull was so nice here so that I just decided to keep the openings uncovered.
 
 
Other places that are easy to create access to are:
 
Behind seats in saloon:
 
 
 
 
Hope this can give some inspiration to others....
 
Have not yet decided where to continue cutting this winter, but the floor in the aft cabins is a good candidate...
