Hi all

 

Struts: Is there some sort of retro-fit available, since Im missing these struts on my 342? Id like to install these struts to obtain a 90 degree open platform (and for additional support).

 

Cheers

Hi!
I think I might have few of those in my spare part box. Remind me 7th of August earliest and I'll check.

Hi All,

I bought my Hanse 342 some years back, and it did not come with the bathing platform installed at all. Does anyone know where or if it is possible to buy this bathing platform/bench somewhere? Im actually only interested in the bench functionality (not that much having a bathing platform), because it feels quite exposed while sailing the boat without any bench plate to enclose the cockpit area. 

Hope someone can help! Smile

If you can't buy what you want, I think it would be possible to build a solution.

I would cut a board to slot vertically into the two drain cutouts either side of the open transom, with a narrower bottom piece to reach to the floor of the cockpit, and maybe cutouts for drainage?. You could add a horizontal bench seat to the top, with bracing supports. Maybe solid plywood with epoxy paint.

I had not realized there appear to be three transom styles for the 342, mine (#241, built December 2004) has a full transom (wheel steered), Johann has a open transom filled by a swim platform when it it not broken (tiller steered), and you appear to have the open transom without the filler. Strange.

Good luck.

I think that when the 342 was introduced I was built after the 341 that had the closed transom. If I remember it correctly I could choose between the closed transom and the newly introduced bathing platform when I got my 342 in 2005. Later years the option was the bathing platform and if you didn't choose that you would get the open transom. The closed transom option was then no longer available.

My bathing platform has not been broken since I got it fixed once and for all and I enjoy it immensely.

When I bought my Hanse 342 (second hand) in Plymouth UK back in 2009, it also had an open transom. But the dealer luckily had a spare one in stock and I got installed before I sailed it to Copenhagen, Denmark where I live. Allegedly the fitting was a bit of a drama. But it still works even if some small crakings at the hinges have appeared over the years.

It will be interesting to se if you can find a solution!Thumbs Up

Ole,
