Love the idea of the hatches, but an extremely disappointed that the holes were not professionally prepare. Was not pleased to have to cut into my new kayak to make it accommodative. My suggestion is to look for a kayak already geared with these items attached, or see if they can be installed before delivery. BUT....LOVE my Ocean Kayak Malibu Two XL. Extremely pleased.
Easy Install with jig saw. Use fine tooth rasp to smooth and then use sandpaper. I used a compass to scribe the inside hole.
Fairly easy to install. Need pliers to remove the spent mandrel from your rivet gun. Lid seems secure and durable.
Works great. It allows us to pack a lot of gear and food inside the kayak where it does not get wet. Installation was not difficult, but you do need a rivet tool. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived at my door the on Saturday morning after I ordered it Friday afternoon.
