I have a 1994 Hunter26 and the handle on the gas tank storage compartment has been missing since the day I bought the boat.

I have looked over and cannot find anything that will fit. I am hoping to find something flush that won't catch on bare feet. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have had the SS swim ladder on my H26 repaired by a local welder who was able to do SS welds. It cost me only $90. I bet you could find a local welding shop to fab you one out of some 1/8 SS rod stock. The trick will be .... how do you install it?

A simple flat SS strap attached by screws on each end? Reach under the strap with a finger or two to lift?

If I could find something that sat flush I would just use 4200 and glue it in
