Hatch Hinge

Post by Diverted Income » Mon Oct 23, 2017 8:40 pm

Anyone have a good solution to installing hinges on the two large engine hatches on an F-32? Wondering what hinge and or lift/strut may work. Have a few ideas but curious what others may have done.
Thanks!

On my previous boat, an F32 I used 3" S/S piano hinges. I didn't have struts but since the hatches are so heavy it might be a good idea.
