Hi all,

Oddly, I think my boat's hatch went missing too... though I suspect embarrassing user error more than anything else. Long story.

I'd prefer to replace it with something that can let some light into the boat.

Does anybody know if this has been done before and what the rules may allow?

I'm thinking a simple sliding piece of Lexan.
