I can't open the eng hatch with a dead battery?

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

Is the boat in the water or on a trailer?

Do you have access to a battery switch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
On trailer no cant get to switch
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Does the boat have a battery switch, or does it not have a battery switch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it has a battery switch but I can't get to it because the eng hatch is electric
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

That doesn't make any sense. How would you turn the battery switch off with an electric hatch? If you turned the switch off you wouldn't be able to close the hatch. Can you physically see the front of the battery switch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The only things that are connected w/the battery switch off are the bilge pump and the hatch.
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Is the battery switch in the engine compartment?

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Can you pop your hatch switch out?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it is, and I do not have access to open the hatch without power.
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Can you pop the hatch switch itself out and just jump the wires that go to the switch to a battery (or your charger)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I took it upon myself and took the entire back seat apart to open/get access to the engine compartment. There was no other way to do it. I'm in and working on the engine. I'd like a refund since I figured it out myself. Thanks.
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

You took the entire thing apart in the 6 minutes between now and my last reply?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It took less than 6 minutes to unbolt the screws, and was working on it as you asked me the same question a few times and was getting no where.
