    Default Hewesraft Pacific Explorer - anchor locker question

    HeHellos have a 2013 24 ft HC pacific explorer and have a quick question a bout the anchor locker. I have the bow pulpit/anchor locker with no windlass. Is there suppose to be a useable hatch (with a latch) on the deck that leads into the locker. My deck anchor locker entry is a piece of painted aluminum which is bolted to the deck, thus making it unusable without cutting a hole.

    any info is appreciated.

    There should be a hatch from inside to access the locker, funny why does it not have a windless. That was the purposes for the pulpit on those models

    Yes mine has the inside access locker. I have the option of the pulpit without the windlas. There is the option of the pulpit with the windlas as well. I was thinking that there would be an on deck hatch or deck pipe for the rode to feed into the locker from the pulpit. Instead it is just a painted aluminum plate bolted to the deck.

    My Hewes came the same way, had to install the deck pipe myself.

    The top plate is for the windless I m sure, the reason they did the windless was more of a safety precaution more so. It would be much easier to get swiped off on a PC than the AK model. The windless can be a pain at time but I would not have it any other way.
