View Full Version : 2+3 engine hatch

I picked up a Barrel Back 2+3 last week, it was a single hatch but unfortunately the engine hatch is AWOL. I was wondering if the hatch on the newer 18 is the same. On the same note, does anyone have a used one for sale?

I don't think the hatches are the same a BB has more curve to it in the rear deck

It's so hard to tell from pictures, from some angles it looks like the BB has less curve than the later ones I'll just keep looking for a BB hatch, or at least one I could pop a mold off of. Thanks.

actually the BB hatch was secured by hasp latches at the corner to hold the curved edges down where the standard 18 uses one center latch
