Greetings,
Mr. g. Why? Is it leaking? I completely removed our similar hatch, refurbished it and re-installed. NOT a terribly complicated process. GREAT for airflow forward.

Clutters the foredeck- nowhere to sit and gaze. I know they look funky and cool.

Greetings,
Mr. g. Cabin escape hatch? I refer back to my ventilation comment. How about a couple of these? https://canadaboatparts.com/sto-away-folding-seat.

I would also advise caution, to you and every other new owner, in making any major changes so soon after purchase. Your boat but think about it some more.

Its last on the 'list' maybe I could sell it- it (like most of the boat when I got it) needs refinishing.

I don't have or know your boat, but I wouldn't consider removing my forward hatch because it provides airflow while underway and at anchor (with a breeze in the anchorage), not to mention an escape hatch from the berthing areas. My forward hatch doesn't currently leak, but it does need some work to bring it back to 'like-new' condition - like most things on my boat.
