Securing flooring hatches

Jose Venegas

We are preparing Ipanema for a trans Atlantic crossing and it is recommended that we secure the flooring hatches. I remember that the newer versions of the SM2000 have some sort of Hatch Latch securing the flooring hatches.
Can somebody kindly show me what they look like and how they are installed?
Has anybody secured the v-berth and aft-cabin beads to prevent their opening in case of a roll?
Any other thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated.
