Re: Amel 55 hatch door cannot be locked from inside

I have never experienced what you are describing.  I have always wished that when the interior lock nub is moved into the locked position, it would have a tactile or audible click assuring that it is actually locked.  Since it doesn’t, I can’t help but test the handles each time to make sure they don’t slide open.


I haven’t been on the boat for 11 months and 15 days thanks to the Covid, but seem to recall an access port around the interior locking mechanism???


Please update the group when you find the issue and solution so that we can have that in the knowledge base.
