By door adjustment

i was wondering how hard it is to adjust the opening and closing of the
outside plastic bay doors? i have a few doors that do not match up when they
are closed. if i have to remove the piano hinge i will pass on this adjustment
as this to me is a big pain in the butt.

if i can just adjust the door by changing the t handle latch this would seem
like a more easier way to change the adjustment?

has anybody adjusted your bay plastic doors?

i also have a few little small cracks in the outside corner of the doors.
what kind of glue or sealer or epoxy should i use to fix these little cracks
on the doors? i dont mind filling them and resanding and then respraying
them with paint.

let me know what you guys have done with the bay doors? thanks

There is a thread regarding Plastic doors - cracking a real issue in cold climates.
Have seen nothing regarding adjustment, but is probably there. I have a 2000 Seaview 8341 and all my doors have cracking. The fix is expensive so I am living with the cracking.

Bay Hinges

I am in the process of replacing the hinge on the left rear bay. hinge has just wore out. Hinge cost $26.00 on Amazon. The old screws are really tuff to remove. Letting them soak a bit in WD 40. Centers on old hinge are 3" new hinge is 2". Stainless. Glad when this job is finished! 2005 5342 Dolphin
