When we purchased our 42 LRC it had the access under the stairs and one approximately 24"x24" floor hatch that opened against the settee...not very functional as you had to hold it open going in or out. A second,larger intended hatch was pinned under the peninsula of our u-galley. As part of replacing the carpet I made both hatches tilt up and lift out. It's nice to have entrance options and the additional natural light when desired.

Please throw me the bowline Fraulein!
