ACK Review: This is a great way to add some storage on the Old Town Vapor 10. The Stern Hatch Kit easily installs over the molded area behind the seat to make a semi dry storage area. The hatch kit was easy to install with a few tools - one being a rivet gun which you can get at your local hardware store for about $20. 6 holes to drill, 4 rivets to install and you are done. I rate this as a beginner installation project.

This hatch kit is a great accessory. It was very easy to install and I feel is a necessity for this kayak. Not only does it improve the functionality of the storage area it also makes for a much more finished look.

Although I hate working with rivets, this was an easy installation. The hatch cover seems to be a must for this kayak, and I don't know why it isn't standard equipment. This hatch is not waterproof, but never claimed to be. It's a nice addition to the Vapor kayak and does the job of keeping your things inside the boat in any condition (capsized or otherwise). They supply plenty of bungie for the latch, but you'll want that fairly tight, so tie a knot (or two) closer to the hatch cover. That'll make the cover a tighter fit. I think a thin rubber strip, glued to the underside of the hatch cover could make this watertight, but I'm not certain about that. Gotta love Austin Kayak. Their price can't be beat, speedy delivery, and a great company to do business with. Thanks ACK.

Hatch back for Old Town Vapor. One needs to know how to use a riviter but if one does, it is a 10 minute job. closure is a little iffy being amini bungy cord but so far it has worked well for us. There really is not other option if you want the opening covered.

I agree with the other positive reviews. This was easy to install, and though it's not waterproof, it does keep out most routine splashes and even small waves. Great price and fast shipping from ACK.

A Great addition to my Old Town Vapor 10. Hatch fit perfectly and the instruction sheet made the installation go smoothly. Really appreciate the quick delivery and the communication from ACK regarding order progress and when it would arrive.

Kayaked the Upper Iowa River did 20miles, Worked great for storage for drybag and shore lunch. Only thing is it doesn't make the storage compartment water proof.
