    It's not that much heavier. It doesn't seem to effect my BJ at all. In fact, I have rolled it a few times and it has hit upside down the then skipped and rolled back over. I think the single canopy design has much less drag when upside down. Makes retrieval much quicker as well. IMO

    You know all the problems I had last year refixing and painting the hull, well I was trying to fix everything right, and it just got to be to much time and money, you find one problem fix it, think your done and theres another and another. I just got to much time and money in it, it just ended up getting worse and worse.

    I can make some pretty neat stuff out of nothing but when it comes to paint and body work it just kicks my butt.

    Sorry Im not painting boats at the moment... or even hatches for that matter. Paint prices are getting ridicuous lately and I cant justify it for as little as I do. I think theres a member who posted in the "for sale" section that is offering painting. If I had a shop w/ multiple colors it would be a different story.

    Gettn close Mike. I was getting caught up on the 29 hatches and cracked a mold, so Im making all new molds for that and setting up a vac bag system to do so. Im trying to get it done in my spare time as quickly as possible.

    Sorry its taken so long to get caught up, things have just been a mess since we moved.

    Ill do my best to get a 26 layed up next week

    ONE RAW HATCH IN STOCK


    Hey folks. As some have you have seen in the BJ26 forums. Ive made a new hatch. Im still doing a bit of R&D and testing of different materials, but for the most part Ive got it dialed. Heres a couple "test hatches". Basically being, making sure they fit right, are heavy enough but not too heavy and keeping paint on them for the future "painted to match" version.

    Im laying them up using West systems epoxy and as a top coat, Adteck Epoxy Top coat, rather than gelcoat. I went that route for two reasons. One, Its easier to get paint to stick to epoxy and two, Ive done some research and it seems the epoxy is much less prone to stress cracks etc as gelcoat will often do.

    We (my neighbor and I) ran tonight and beat the heck out of our boats. Pushing them W.O.T. thru every turn and rolling and flipping them as much as possible. Sounds crappy but hey, its for the research. Ive run mine with the new hatch 5 times and my neighbor has run his twice. One thing we did notice is, we use a rescue rig to go get the boat after its capsized. An AC Hammer w/ a pvc attachment. It pushes much better through the water while upside down w/ these hatches. And right side up, IMO, they look 100 times better than the factory hatch. And best of all, no more lost canopys or drivers.


    ***Painted to match the factory scheme no longer available***

    Heres the thread in the BJ forums

    https://forums.offshoreelectrics.com...ad.php?t=18307


    And heres a few pics

    Enjoy,
    Scott

    EDIT: You will notice in the first picture, a line going across from side to side and the front of the scoop. I was doing a relief cut line in the first few I layed up to prevent a wrinkle and then realized (last picture) that I didnt have to.
    I would love to purchase a blackjack 26 hatch from you! They look awesome!
