    2859 Owner Question

    I need to change by engine room hatch hinges. Has anyone out there done this and are there any tricks. Are the bulkhead side screws backed up with nuts? Before I just into this as this hatch is heavy, thought I would ask for some advice.

    I'm interested in this very thing as my hinges are sprung.

      I will replace mine with three of those, original ones are a joke.

        Where can I find such?

        And please let me know what your process to change them is.

          The engine bay hatch on my 2556 is a bit different but I used much wider stainless hinges by sea dog purchased from fisheries supply. Yes OEM hinges are not great.

            Yes there are nuts on the back side and yes I have replaced mine, the pins go by by, I think on the 2859 Owner post there is a picture of the engine bay and you can spot the new hinge.

              I sooo hate catching my toes on these hinges when walking on the deck barefoot (In Summer naturally). They are not foot friendly in the least.

                I got mine from
                https://www.ebay.com/itm/222535398009

                They came highly polished and pretty sturdy looking.

                I plan to install them similar to this picture:

                Unlike 2452 hatch hinges, they are right at transom, so not really a high probability to hit the toes.
