Hello all , our 355 #47 had the optional stern access locker included. This has proved to be very useful indeed and greatly increased the ease of access to gear we have stored in the stern area.

We are working towards taking the boat to the Pacific Islands from New Zealand in the next 2-3 years. In NZ , to go offshore , NZ registered boats need to obtain a Cat 1 certificate before being customs cleared. The current locker door would not pass Cat 1 as is not watertight (in a large following sea etc). 

Has anyone has experience of replacing the factory fitted locker door with a watertight version?

Thanks
Matt
