I recall somewhere on this forum a number of years ago owner's showing a solution for this. They glued (epoxy?) some pieces of plexiglass (or acrylic) to the top of the hatch to hold the boards in place while sailing.

 
I think it was Johan Hackamn who did it if my memory serves me well.


I have been looking like mad for a picture of my hatch as I believed I had posted one in this forum before. Since I didn't find it I had take a new one.

I first started with gluing teak strips on the hatch but that didn't hold long. When I was complaining about it here another Canadian with a light blue 400 sent me acrylic strips (left overs from when he had made a broken hatch into glass holders) that I glued with epoxi to the sliding hatch. You can see it if you look carefully in the picture below. This solution has lasted over ten years. Thanks, Owen!

The search function in myhanse is a goldmine of information. I searched "glue hatch" (All forums/any date), and the subject "Seized hatch" from Sep 28 2010 by "Hansebonbon" appeared. The solution with a couple of small handles seems okay.

I had a low tech solution on my 400e. I simply placed a strip of non-slip matting on the sliding hatch. This worked well.

Mine is permanently attached by a cord so that if the boat was to be rolled in heavy weather or an inexperienced crew laid it incorrectly on the deck it would not get lost over the side. I can also pull it back with the cord when it goes under the hatch

I also had the problem, and like Rubato I put 2 screws with wide rubber bushings as stops. It has worked for several years now. I used a drill to remove the "star" in the screws, for burglary protection. If I want to change or remove the stops, I will have to cut the rubber and remove the screws the hard way.

An alternative method is to add stops in the teak side rails so the hatch can't slide right out. I initially used 2 screws (one each side) and later changed it to an inserted steel rod with a rubber bushing on the outside.

Hi Scottie

You need to unscrew the hatch garage. When you do, you'll probably find that there were 2 hardwood battens screwed together through the perspex hatch (one below and 1 above). The screws have probably bent and possible damaged the perspex. Suggest replacing one of the battens (cant remember which), with aluminium angle section. Drill new oversize bolt holes in the hatch cover. Use rubber grommets as spacers in the perspex cover (they absorb the impact of the slamming against the stop), and bolt back together (don't use screws because the same problem will recur).
