Cockpit locker dimensions?

Post by Moto »

Hello all!
I am in need of the interior height dimension of the aft cockpit locker. I purchased a Bosch 7 gal hot water tank to install in my 94' PDQ36 and am worried that it won't fit (too tall)! I was planning on installing it in the stbd aft cockpit locker behind the stbd outboard compartment (also curious about the hatch opening dimensions but not too concerned as I am a glassman). Anybody near their PDQ? (I'm about 1,200 miles away...)
Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Moto,

I measured the dimensions on my 2000 model as -
Opening = 11.75" x 20.25 ". The internal mounting space = 32"L X 30" W X 25.75"H.

Thanks Jim!
I really appreciate it! This is good news as I needed a minimum of 21". I imagine our lockers are similar. Just to be clear, the stbd locker I'm referring to is part of the cockpit seating area ( just aft and inboard of the stbd outboard locker...)
Thanks again Jim!!!

OK, these dimensions are for the locker where my water heater is. I'll measure the cockpit locker and let you know.

My opening is 20" long by 13" wide although if you can tilt whatever you put in there you can gain about 1/2" width due to the curved front of the lid. Inside it is 20" wide x almost 21" deep.
