My salon door latch broke and while unscrewing it, the "C" clamp that holds the door closed fell into the door. I figured I would remove the door and retrieve it. I'm pretty handy and for the life of me I can't figure out how to take the door off. Believe it or not, I can't even get the screen door off. They are usually on spring rollers. What am I missing here? I find it hard to believe you would have to take the entire frame off. I would order a new part and leave the old one in the door but I haven't been able to find it online yet.

I don't know how, but it's apparently fairly easy. Sliding doors are commonly discussed in the owners club forum. -Chris

Ask Walter, he fixed his lock and had his door out on his 34C.
I think you need to take the front piece of wood off.

Thanks to all. It certainly is not intuitive. I did not see any typical plastic or other inserts. I took out top screws and that did nothing. I was just about to grab my hammer and decided on a a cup of coffee instead. I even said to a friend as I was unscrewing it...."I hope this doesnt fall inside the door" two seconds later...Plunk. I should have listened to myself. I dont think a magnet will help retreive it either as my guess is it is made of SS. Does anybody know what that "C" jaw that closes name would be?

That happened to me on a 2005 34C. I used a wad of duct tape on a metal coat hanger to eventually retrieve it. It helps to have one of those inspection cameras to see what you are doing with the tape and a long flexible grabber to hold it when the taped coat hanger brings it into reach.

Going back at it again tonight. Called Taylor Made. They dont sell parts, only full assembly for $2,500. I'll cut a hole in the door first to get the part back.

Are you talking about a snap ring? If so you can get those at most hardware stores.

No Al, it is part of the door latch. The best way to describe it is ...it acts like Pac Man. It grabs the "T" on the frame to hold the door closed. I just heard back from Silverton and they have the part. ($38). Sure beats $2,500 from Taylor Made. Now I just need to be careful not to drop this one inside when installing. My door might start getting very heavy by the tme I'm done. I'm still going to Home Depot tonight for a camera and some sort of grabber just because I dont like to give up.

Update- Lloyd at Egg Harbor Yachts sent me the $35 part in two days and it is installed and working perfectly. He was terrific and a pleasure to deal with. This doesn't happen too often anymore. I gave it my best shot to get the old part out of the door but nothing worked. I could see it with my colonoscopy scope but could not snag it. Anyway, thanks to all for your advice.

OK, next question: Why do you have your own colonoscope?

For those long nights out at Sea. Actually I just bought it at Home Depot for this project. It ws only $100 and the scope can go underwater so I thought it would be a good thing to keep on board. (For both reasons.) :)

I came to this thread thinking that would be a cool idea removing the double glass door and replacing it with a window and a standard bulkhead door! Sounds like way too much work to me.

You could have saved a lot of time and energy by simply answering with the truth.....

The latch on our 310 express cruiser fell apart several years ago. I contacted Silverton and they sent a new latching device. After several hours of trying to make it work properly, I decided that locks were only meant to keep honest people out, and if someone broke my door the cost of replacing it would far exceed anything that we kept onboard.

To this day my sliding door still does not have a replacement lock.

The latch on my door didn't work and I didn't got a key when I bought the boat, looked for a matching key for month (before I finally joined BE) then spend hours on fixing the latch, when I finally did my kids were not able to open the door on their own so I took the male out of the port side of the frame. Oh well...
