HATCH COVER - REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE
Hatch covers on a ship are used to cover a cargo hold to protect the goods it is transporting. A hatch cover when closed will render the cargo space air and water tight. The cargo space needs to be well protected against the sea and weather conditions to ensure that the cargo is not damaged. The seal of a hatch cover needs to be checked periodically to ensure that it affords the protection required.
