FREEMAN MARINE Quick-Acting, custom fabricated cockpit hatches offer a wide range of options to meet customer specifications.  Patented chain-drive dogging allows multiple dogs (up to 8 per circuit) to be activated by a single bi-square or interior handle.  Dogs feature roller bearing cam followers for easy closure.  Eternal bi-squares may be ordered for exterior dogging.  Custom shapes and sizes may be ordered with either flush or proud coamings.  Camber and sheer requirements to match deck profiles are routinely crafted.  hatches can be specified with either surface or concealed hinges.  Panels and coamings can be specified with custom alignment for teak overlaying by installation yard or builder.
