Replacing Ski Locker Hatch


CraigSim

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all...

I just bought a 2000 Response and the rear storage hatch is looking pretty rough. It broke at the hinges. Can you buy these hatches or do i have to make one myself.

Thanks. I Googled Perko IIRC. Nothing I am looking for came up. Do you have a link?

I am looking to replace the whole hatch. Not just the hinges.

OK - they is a bit more clear.  The hatches of that era were made of a Kleigecell core with some reinforcements (I had my 99 apart last year) so any similar composite is fine - Divinycell etc.  Or a lightweight marine board like Staroard Lite, etc.  Or call malibu - I am sure they will make you one, but it will cost s fair bit.  Not sure how someone could trash that thing though?

Thanks! Yeah, not sure either, but it's pretty beat. The shocks are missing from it - those brackets rusted off. So I am guessing that it was being opened up to far...over time it just broke right where the hinges attach it.

my 99 failed there as well.. struts were in place.. same material that was used for the floor panel over the mufflers.. that failed a while back.. used resin coated ply for that fix , but it is thicker and i worry about flex on the locker lid which is 1/2" thick  .. starboard is too heavy, but this starboard lite may be the ticket... haven't found a source for it locally, but i know campion boats uses it for current builds.

A nasty gust of wind hyper-extended my hatch last August.
