I was getting progressively nervous about my hatch being held in place by nothing but the hasp. One trip to the hardware store and the worry is gone. The pins were made by cutting the heads off stainless shoulder bolts and drilling them.
Ray and I are nearing completion of our teardrop. We have questioned the upper ends of the gutter. During installation of the gutter, the shape made it seem as though there was supposed to be an opening at the top of the gutter on both sides. We filleted up each side and across the top. Now as we have a better understanding of the water flow, gutter, weatherstripping we are starting to wonder if that hole should be sealed.
Could you post a picture of the top of your gutter where it turns to go across the galley side of the bulkhead? That would be greatly appreciated.
They make something similar, only locking, for automotive use. At least they used to. I had some on the hood of my 65 Mustang fastback 38 years ago. I still have them but not the car. 😥 I would post pics but can’t figure out how to do it on this site with my “smart” phone.
