RE: Sliding doors-hard to open and close

FlyWright, how may of the discs did you use and how did you position them?* Also what diameter did you use? I found packages of "Slideglide", which I assume are what you used. They will fasten with tape as well as screws or both.

Well the discs didn't work. Make the door too high to fit back in the upper track. Will try something else. Thanks.

"but I would rather make them break into the boat to get it."


Just remember , they WILL get in , how much damage you will need to repair is your decision.

In the Carib , we found a Sears 12V -- 20 mile cattle fence unit hooked to the SS lifelines and stanchons , and the SS davits , metal Grumman dink took care of midnight guests.

Have you ever come up with a solution to sealing the gap? I have the same thing. I've tried a few different ideas like brushes but I'm still not happy. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

One winter project is to replace the PH doors.

Our choice is for a Dutch Door setup , so the door can be left open in big slop., and perhaps light rain.

I've only seen that done on swinging doors; often wondered if it was possible on sliders.

Do like dutch doors though, for as you mentioned you can have the top half open for ventilation & visibility yet still have a modicum of security.
