Thank you all!
She really is a "all weather boat" , and the watertight hatch is just that!

For those of you interested in some video footage of AHTS supply vessel models in a rough model sea habitat
this stream was shot in a German swimming bath where they have some kind of wave making device.
Though the artificial bath's swell may not quite be a Pierson-Moskowitz or JONSWAP or any of the other spectra,
which they use in model testing in ocean engineering,I find the stream, especially those parts in slow-mo, quite impressive.
Here's the Making of the video, unfortunately only with German audio commentary.

Thankīs Calypso!
Deadwood, great videos! Looked a lot warmer than when I took my pictures. Really like the slow motion parts, would like to do something like that myself sometime.
All the best to both of you.

Hello!
Give me a day or two and I'll get some pictures here. Basically I made a plexi/perspex hatch with a rubber seal that is screwed down under the original hatchcover/deckhouse. The hatch over the rudders is also secured by screws and has a rubber seal.
All the best!

Hello!
A picture of the hatch under the "winch house" on the aft deck. I stole the idea from someone here or another forum, donīt really remember. It works great, and itīs easy to check if there is something wrong below decks.
Also pictures of my lighting project, not finished yet, front toplight and some more decklights to ad.
All the best!

Hello Stormbringer!
I have the same motors that I put in her from the beginning, Graupner 500E. They work great in my opinion and give more than enough speed. I felt they ran a little warm in the beginning so I put on some cooling fans, it worked great. I have a ventilation system that takes air from back of the funnels, over the motors by the motor fans, and out through the big vent on the back of the superstructure with the help of a big fan behind the vent grill. The motors run cold and there is no moist or humidity inside the boat after a run.
All the best!
