Where do the two forward hatches on an 80' Elco lead to? If I look at the plans I have from Al Ross, they enter the galley and the head? I would have thought the crew quarters. I want to have a small amount of interior detail suggested on my Italeri boat. Maybe the ladders are enough. Thoughts, opinions?

The deck hatch just forward of the charthouse led down a short fore-aft bulkhead opposite the galley, just aft and to port of the hatchway to the forward crew's compartment.

The other deck hatch (the one most forward) led to the crew's head, which was forward of the lockers in (the forward part of) the crew's compartment.
