Default 99 Z252 Ladder latch question

Noticed swimplatform ladder cover/hatch doesnt have a latch to keep it down on my boat. Not sure if its missing/broken or if they just didnt come with one. I really dont see a place where a latch mechanism would have gone. can someone confirm whether its suppose to be there or not? thanks.

    No latch on my 99 Z280. Gravity holds it in place.

    Kinda what i was thinking, just sucks i guess if youre in semi rough water, constant slamming? not sure. Where on hudson river are you? Im in Stony Point by Patsys Bay. Go to the BBQ place on the water there with my bike. looking forward to taking the boat there.

    I am in Piermont at Cornetta's. Used to spend lots of time in Croton but it is too noisy on weekends now. I have been in some pretty rough water like NY harbor and never saw the cover move.

    Thanks man. Really appreciate it. Any other good swimming spots besides croton? Been going there only for 20 years.

    I don't have a latch or anything on my '99 Z280 for the fiberglass ladder cover, nor did I have one on the 2000 Z250 I had either. The Z250 didn't even have a fiberglass cover. It just had a snap strap to keep the ladder in place.



    Is your setup like this?

    There are no other sandy beaches like Croton that I am aware of but if the water is relatively calm I like to go to a little cove in Philipse Manor, just north of the Sleepy Hollow light house. Not really a cove but it is out of the way and quiet compare to Croton. Plenty of water so you can back almost in to shore.
