Re: companionway sliding hatch

I will get pics taken. Give me until Monday to post on website as I
have had a death in family and will not be back to boat until then.
BTW, I do custom canvas for boaters as a business and I have made
many canvas doors, many ways through the years. Mine is attached
with snaps but I am going to change that as guests tend to pull the
canvas door too hard and unsnap it. I will use a slide track with a
bolt rope. Easy enough change. Should have designed it that way to
start with. What is great about the door is that I can just roll it
up and tuck it at the base of the dodger and it's out of the way.

Yep, I sewed a great canvas door with an oval window in it. I
attached the canvas to the fiberglass at the forward end of the
sliding hatch. I placed a sail batten inside the canvas at the
end of the sliding hatch to hold the fabric up so the sliding
could also stay open. I also sewed in insulating material
coat lining) to retain my heat & A/C inside the boat. It works
great! And all I have to do is lift the canvas out of the way.
better than constantly sliding opening the hatch and the door a
hundred times a day! I even incorporated a zip-in no-see-um
for the days I don't need to worry about heat or A/C being on. If
need a pic, let me know!
