Question for Jay at BLM

#1

Post by JETTYWOLF » Tue Jan 08, 2008 7:22 am

Was wondering in the last few photos I saw of the new super sleeper cab,
what it looked like, in the end.

IE:

-the box up on the stern...was that a livewell?

-and was the larger cut out in the floor for an "aluminum" deck hatch versus, the Armstrong compression "spin-out"?

Hi Captain Dave,

Boat is in final phase of being rigged - I'll post some photos when done.

The deckplate is now a cast aluminum rectangle held down with screws replacing the Armstrong Circular Compression Deckplate.

I don't remember the box on the transom - I'll look again tomorrow and reply!

Yeah.........I KNEW IT.
All I had to do is see that hole in the floor and have my fine knowledge of marine hardware and 2 and 2 together, meant just one thing, of those bad BACK SIDE hatches, like a real commercial boat has.

Although I have seen them on a 27 Conch from Massapoiset, Mass.

Wish I had one of those hatches....what was the reason?

Don't tell me it's "less" expensive that an Armstrong compression dohicky.
Cause I've looked at them.

I liked them way before I bought my boat.

It's truely a nice addition to the list of hardware.
