Any chance that the later models have hinges that makes it possible to lift the door off?
I would like to just to make it easier to access the engine and gearbox.
Perhaps the later ones have easier ehinges.

Yes, I think later ones are liftable.
Our boat is hull nr. 186 and I usually lift doors away when needed to do something.

I ended up grinding the hinge a bit to be able to get the pin out, then polish/grind ~1/10mm off the pin to make it drop in again smoothless. I put a 2mm o-ring on the top to make it easy to lift with a pinky nail :-)
Takes 1-2 hours pr door.
