Check out www.a2a4.co.uk. I've found them to be really helpful - they're always at all the local boat jumbles with a huge range of stock.

What sort of hinges would you recommend, I plan to hinge it to the side as opposed to forward or backwards.

Also what sort of seal would you recommend around the sides?

Thanks

Andy

in addition to my PM:

Use sea screw for stainless screws and washers. I used nice stainless hinges to the seat lid, and sunk wacking great screws into nice mahogany blocks to make it all nice and strong. Hinges and attachments are always first to go on cheaply made consoles.

I used 12mm (i think) sticky back foam strip for the hatch seal. Its not ideal as it squashes and will probably need replacing in a couple of years but its cheap like the budgie and easy to apply.

Oh, and yeah I got my WBP from Sydenhams (building merchants) on the IOW.

Thanks very much Tim.

The only problem Ican find with Sea Screw is that they only do up to 2" length screws ad ideally I might want longer. However they are very cheap, especially if you buy a decent amount so I think I will be ordering them later tonight. They also have good hinges so I will probably get them from there too.

What sort of fastenings would anybody recommend, a lot of jockeys seem to have velcrow, but some have metal fastening mechanisms.

Thanks

Andy

Protex fastenings are nice, but not cheap. Check out their website. They sell direct:
