We are considering joining the Regatta de Amigos (Huston,TX to Vera
Cruz, MX) in May. One of the equipment requirements is hard storm
covers for hatches over 2 sq ft (haven't measured ours yet, but they'd
be close). The hatches (2) are Bomar and have a mid support. Do you
rig this as plywood covering only the 'light' secured with line or a
box covering the whole hatch? I guess I'd lean toward the box, but
then would you have to attach hardware to the deck, rrrr. I've seen
plenty of references to covers but never seen one.
