Re: companionway

I use a dry silicone like sailkote or a similar 3m product both on the rubber gasket on the vertical part of the companionway as well as the sliding hatch.

The hatch needs to be sprayed in the tropics twice a year.

It is used mostly for the foil tracks on the sails as it is not a wet lubricant and does not attract dust.

Hi, I rubbed  the sliding part and the sliders with a candle. Worked very well.

The sliding hatch of the companionway of our SM2K is rather difficult to move, does anybody know what to do to make it slide again smoothly?
