Jezza you mentionerd your A frame being loose, is it bolted all the way down through the hull? My 535 had an original frame fitted that went through the deck and the hull, if so could you remove the frame to drain the water?

Kernow. yep it was this is there I think it all got in.
The A frame was bolted all the way through.
but the bolts are through the flat parts of the rear chines. and not at the bottom of the v.
so the water wont fully drain. i managed to get it all out with a tube and a vax .

Any suggestions anyone?
Or how much it will cost me for some one to do it.
The hatch looks similar. I didn't see a brand or any model numbers on mine. Probably Chinese like everything else here in Australia.

The idea of the Deck hatch is to allow me to take a good look and to allow the moisture to dry out while its on the trailer and covered up.

Yep all made in China ... isht everything now. China will take over the world . ;-)
