186Re: Rigging Questions
- Sep 2, 1998Regarding the Blake seacocks. When you haul in the Fall, Remove the
compression collars and wack at the barrel with a rubber mallet. Next try
penetrating oil. You do need to get them working, just in case.
Re Hatches: I believe all came with two hatches with a third small one in
the head an option (mine has one). They did have a raise molding. Perhaps
someone wanted to replace the salon one with a bigger one? On my boat the
hatch in the Main salon and the V berth are the same size.
