Lost key

Posted: 3 Jan 2017 - By: Adam Power

The key for the main hatch to our Rival 41 (aft cockpit) is a little cylinder with little projecting lugs that turns a plate on the hatch that engages in a slot in the deck. Returning to plane from Columbia recently I managed to loose the key on one of 4 flights or in 3 airports. I had a spare but haven't seen that for a couple of years. When I fly back to Columbia in a couple of weeks after adressing some business and picking up a few parts I will have to break in to my own boat and improvise a new lock. The key has always been tricky to operate and has got more difficult recently so I am not entirely sorry to change the arrangement but I wonder if anyone else has the same type of lock and if they have done anything to change it.
