Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Oceanair Skyscreen

I am interested in these screens as well. Alexandre, do you remember the sizes you installed? Here is why I ask...

In October, we had the Oceanair rep on board in Fort Lauderdale to do the measuring for these screens and possibly the other portlight curtains. Once he left we never heard from him again despite several calls/emails.

Here it is Duane,

Therefore when I had the rat coming, he (or she) was able to open the hatch, so I had to use pin to secure it.

I think the rat would be able to chew through it, as it later tried to shew through the little mosquitoes mesh of the small hatches.

For info, I had MRE (military meal ready to eat onboard), the rat even chew through the heavy duty plastic…

So in short, I doubt the Ocean Skyscreen will prevent rat invasion.

To reply your 2nd question: Yes I like them, very practical to open the mosquito mesh in order to close the hatches. I never used the black out fabric.

Yes I attached them to the wood trim of the salon and forward cabins, and to close the little gap, I put a little auto adhesive rubber.

Hope that helps…

Sincerely, Alexandre

I'm looking for anyone with
experience with the Oceanair Skyscreen on the
As part of our
vermin-proofing of Wanderer (see previous post on Rats!), we
want to put a screen on the ports and hatches that will at
least make intrusion detectable without a making a project
out of it (I have too many d@!!! projects
The Oceanair Skyscreen for
the overhead hatches (excluding the head) seems like a good
choice.  If you did buy them:- do you
like them?- did you attach them to the
wood trim in the main and forward cabins, or did you remove
these trim pieces so the Skyscreen flange was flat agains
the headliner?
Does anyone have another
suggestion for the overhead hatches?
