Hi.

I've ordered a new spray hood for my 2004 Hanse 312, but Im a bit confused on what height to make the new spray-hood.

The old one measures 168cm from deck/floor to highest point, and that sometimes obstructs the  boom, and most certainly my forward vision, so I'm definitely going to lower it a bit, but I am uncertain how much to lower it.

I figure at least 5 Cm, or preferably even 10 cm. I'm considering even more, but at a certain stage there is going to be a bit of head bending to enter below.
Also there is the matter of appearance.

What is a good height for the sprayhood roof om a 312 to maintain vision and sail/boom , without getting to low _

Do you know the height on yours , and are you satisfied with it ?

I hope to have the sprayhood tailor to come aboard on Wednesday to make the template, so im in a decision hurry here Sleepy

Any suggestions or advice would help.

Hi, and sorry for the delay.

I have just measutred our sprayhood and it is 5'0" (152  cm) from the cockpit sole.   I can see above it when we are moving,  and it does not normally interfere with the boom.   I do have to duck my head when going below,  but I am 6'0" (183cm)!
I do normally drop it when on the move for visibilty,  but that's just a personal thing.

I already had to make the decision, so I went for 158cm, which is 10cm down from before.
Same hight front and aft (was rising backwards before).
 
Nice to know that that wont be to low then, as yours is even lower, thanks Tongue
 
I'm sailing mostly west coast Norway, so not to many to days where its comfortable sailing with the hood down during the year in this parts.
