The Valley Style Round Day Hatch Cover by Necky is the replacement round hatch cover for Valley Canoe Products round hatch rims as well as Necky brand kayaks and some older Wilderness Systems kayaks. The thick, durable rubber construction is designed to last for years and provide the best water tight hatch seal you can find for your Valley Kayak.
Have ordered several sets of these these though out the years for my entire fleet, since the Valleys originals have a bad habit of dry rotting I bought these. Been very happey with them. will buy them again, probaly not to far in the future. I think their better than the original Valley hatches and cheaper too! Good stuff!!!!
was very tight and took quite an effort to get it on
They they do a good job keeping the compartment dry. They are hard to put on and take off, and it seems that they have to be replaced due to cracking more frequently than I'd like. Personally I prefer the Kajak Sport hatch covers. I have two of these on a boat built in 2002, and they are still in fine shape. Using 303 protectorant helps prolong the life of all covers, particularily so in the case of the Valley style.
Great cover! I purchased this to replace the front hatch on my ancient Hydra Sea Twin that totally disintegrated. It's a tight fit but I'd rather that than have a cover that's loose.
