    Has anyone tried to dampen the mechanical engine noise on a doghouse or full engine hatch? What materials did you use, and how well did it work? I love the exhaust sound but I can't hear it over the engine noise from inside the boat.

    Here is my latest boat related project that turned from a "fix" to a total rebuild of the engine/storage hatch on my wifes 20' Canyon Silhouette. Last year we noticed that the hatch was not closing correctly and that the wood under the hinges was failing. I finally got around to pulling the...

    The hatch actuator on my boat is starting to jam in the closed position. It is 5 years old. It took me about 10 minutes and several trys to get it to free up this weekend. Once free it works fine. Any ideas? The hatch moves freely. Can this thing be lubricated? Not sure who the manufacture is.

    I have a 2004 Lighting 21XS and I'm having problems with my hatch not opening. I read all about the relay that needed to be added to speed it up when lifting and I ordered one from Rexone and plan on installing it this weekend but I don't think it will totally fix my problem. The hatch sometimes...

    My hatch opens at a snails pace and also is killing the heck out of my brand new battery. I've been doing a little research and it appears that running the motor through relays or a relay box instead of how it's wired now directly to the switch , that my problems will go away. Where can get one...

    Engine Hatch Build I needed to build an engine hatch for my 84 Eliminator Sport, I was looking for a way to build one lightweight and with an air scoop. This hatch isn't rigid enough for someone to stand on. Not really what I was going for. Here is what I came up with.

    Just finished rewiring hatch actuator with relays and heavy wire. Worked great. Went for a boat ride. Hit some serious cruiser wakes. When I got home couldn't raise hatch. After checking it out I'm pretty sure one of the splices at the actuator must have come apart. Anyone know any tricks for...
