Sorry Rob, I haven't a clue about the colours in the cabin as mine was already done and I think is just white. To do it now would be a bit like copying the gynecologist who decorated his hall and stairs through the letter box. Cheers Graham.

Hello and seasons greetings to you all. Having had a good think about it and seen some other ideas I finally got down to fixing down the hatch on my Smit N. The first picture shows a 'beam' glued and screwed to the back of the hatch under the hatch deck. It is positioned so that when fitting the hatch, sliding it back places the beam under the rear deck of the hull and stops the deck lifting. I am not planning to tow so I think it will be sufficiently strong for normal use. I cannot claim the the next idea is mine but is the result of a discussion with a very nice gentleman on the Droitwich Spa Modelboat club stand at Warwick. He is also refubing a Smit N and we talked about the hatch fixing. I think I have done what he was suggesting, so I thank him for that. I removed the two winch pulleys fitted to the two uprights at the front of the superstructure, drilled and tapped them 4BA and fitted two long studs. I then drilled down through the uprights and refitted the pulleys. I then made two bent latches and lock nutted them to the ends of the 4BA studs. When the hatch is fitted a quarter turn on each of the pulleys puts the latches under the front deck. I am still dithering about sealing the hatch and think I have three main ways to choose from. The first, favorite for ease and simplicity (if I can find some tape) is to us freezer tape or similaras  has been suggested in an earlier posting. The second is I think mentioned in the 'Stavros builds a springer' where he describes using Silicon sealer and Vaseline or cling film to form a seal which is fixed to the hull but not the latch. So thanks for that Stavros however I am note sure how good I am with the sealer (you should see my bath) so I may have to practice a bit first. Thirdly I have found a PVC strip which is used on old cars where the wings are bolted on. Cut down it could be fitted in gap between the hatch and the deck. It is available by the metre from a company called Woolies at a reasonable price. The problem I have with this idea is how to accurately enlarge the gap to fit the seal. Suggestions are again more than welcome. Cheers Graham.  :)

I am looking at the latch mechanism and wondering if you would not get a tighter fit with those springy bits fitted the other way round?

I'm thinking that I might re design the deck access on my re furb; make it like my Tito, with a screwed down, water tight hatch and the day to day access under the main superstructure.  Then I could have a raised combing inside there and avoid this water problem.

Hi Banjo, Yes I did think that the other way might be better but it did not seem to make much difference as they are not very springy. I think your screwed down hatch idea good and probably the safest. Please post some pictures if you do it. Thanks Graham. O0

Graham
Its a work in progress NOT
at the moment I'm waiting for a Kort and some other bits and pieces from Billings.  Then I can get the running gear in and think about fitting the deck etc.
I'm playing with a Kingston moulding Fire boat, a Tito Neri thats not completely finished and this shipwreck Smit as well.
Did I tell you that when I went to clear the dust and grime off it in the bath, the glue holding the deck on all gave up the ghost.  It turned out it had been fitted without the extra flashing been cut off. {-)   (Umi said it gave it more capacity when I told her)  so that all came off.
The 6 v Decaperms were loose in the hull, as well as the shafts and rudders, never been fitted.  Brand new and dusty.

Ah well it was my turn to have a lucky find!
