290/300 engine hatch failure

Recommended Posts

Was in the engine compartment cleaning the bilge when the hatch started to close. No way out. We are talking about several hundred lbs of hatch and seating. Get caught in between and you are toast. Fortunately, I was at the Marina and fellow boaters heard me yelling and got on board. At the helm, they pressed the open hatch rocker. The hatch opened, I got out, then slowly closed again. Clearly failing.
Two questions. Is there a switch in the engine compartment that allows you to open the hatch if unable to get out?  Secondly, what brand was used on a 2009.
