The Hobie Rectangular Hatch Drop-In Bucket is a convenient storage bucket that drops right into the Hobie Rectangular Twist and Seal Hatch (hatch sold separately).
I found out the hard way that these are too deep for the PA17 I was able to make a modification and make them fit the center hatch no hope for the front or rear, not ACK's fault but wanted other customers to know, no info from Hobie either about them not fitting
Expensive for a simple plastic drop in box for the rectangular hatch.
Hobie Rectangular Drop in Bucket recieved first one was missing the strap. Emailed ACK and they promptly sent me a replacement. Works well holds all the stuff I need to carry in there and it stays dry.
I really like the product. I fish a lot of small jigs for blackfish, porgy and fluke and I can keep several small boxes in this container that organize the jigs easier than a large compartment box would. I can also keep 2 small leader spools and already tied rigs that would not fit into the standard box. If I am using the regular boxes, I simply reinstall the compartment and use the box as a way to carry my electronics on board and then store it in the forward hatch of my PA. Great product with a nice design. Very pleased with it. No issues after a few weeks of hard use.
