One of my biggest worries is the fact that the boat is leaking everywhere – next to the mast, hatches, portholes… It will probably take me a long time to fix everything, but I guess I have to start somewhere. I decided to fix one problem – new hatches. My friends Andrej & Jelena were going to Trieste to buy some equipment for their boat and I found hatches that I thought would work in the Motomarine catalog, so I asked them if they could buy them form me there. They weren’t exactly cheap, but I have already made the decision to buy them. It was quite a big job to take the old hatches down and to install new ones, so I decided to leave it to the professionals and hired a local boat service company to do it.
They look great and more importantly, they are watertight!! 🙂

If it goes someway to achieving a dry boat,the expense will have been worthwhile. There’s enough water about at sea to worry about! A dry boat is always going to be more comfortable,warmer and a place to enjoy being
All true 🙂
