Neat idea Kenny, I like it. Think I'll think about doing that on Adele. Easy one to do once afloat.
Thanks!
Clive

Thanks for your reply.This is another option to look at. I think I might have to make some mockups and see which works the best on my boat. Itís great to get other ideas from people who actually use their boats.
Thanks again
Alan

Gents,

Slightly different approach on HP20. Bi-fold full width cabin door with top panel hinged to bottom panel on lift off hinges. Keeps both panels together and allows lift off, stow away next to helm.

Sorry for delay in getting back to you.. I think the bi-fold set up may be the way to go. Just need to see how they sit when open. Thanks again

Hi Alan,
Looking at the photo. The photo is a a photo of the original door which as been cut in two to make a bi fold door. The top door was normally put on the top of the toilet compartment lid as this was useful to many owners as a place to store it when underway.

Regards

* Thanks for the reply. In the photo my new hatch is in the seagoing position. A second hinge on the forward end allows tithe whole thing to open to sit vertical when full access is required. The door part is at the moment a single piece of ply which due to its size is awkward to stow away . I was wondering what the original setup would have been when built I.e washboards or a two piece door hinged at either end with a vertical split. If this was the case did they open into the cabin or out into the wheelhouse.
Cheers
Alan

Hi Alan,
Could take some photos of what you have done so I have a better idea of what you are trying to do.
I worked for Hardy Marine from 1983 to 1990. So I will be able to point you in the right direction.
Kind regards

I am doing up my 17ph and would like to know what the original method for securing the cabin. I have already replaced the flat top section with two part hinged setup which works quite well. I am looking for ideas for what is really the door. The cabin was pretty stripped out ,no cushions etc, so any internal photos of 17ph/ navigator would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance Alan
