Installed this Kajak Sport 42/30 on my P&H Orca 14. I bought the craft used and without a hatch cover. I've been shaking down the boat getting ready for the season. Today I set out on what I thought was going to be 1-2 ft seas. Once I got out there it was more like 2-4 with a moderate chop and 15-20kt winds. One leg of the trip was following seas breaking on the stern. After about 2- 1/2 hours I put in and found that the stern compartment was completely dry. I was concerned that this part wouldn't fit like factory. It did a great job. I feel that this product will offer performance beyond the level of my abilities. Would recommend.
The 42/30 hatch is easy to put on and take off, snug fit, very soft and pliable unlike other hatches. My only negative about this order was that they sent the wrong one which put one of my boats out of commission for a specific trip because of the delay. It was rectified however.
