Outboard Well Hatch

Post by DCordner » Tue Aug 07, 2018 3:39 pm

I now sail Bebop on Grafham Water where we are not allowed to use outboards. My understanding is that the Swift 18 had a outboard well hatch to stop build up of water in the well when sailing. As i now rarely use an outboard and if I do it is now an electric one, does anyone have pictures or measurement of what the hatch should look like?

There is a diagram on page 4 of newsletter 18, don't know if this helps.
