Hi Matt, thanks for this link and yes the freeman hatches are very good. they are however also rather out of budget at this stage, mind you i AM Dutch! ...unless you have a couple stored in the garage you dont use?

I used these on my boat:
International Marine Supplies :: Boat Hatches :: Aluminium Boat Hatches :: Aluminium Water Resistant Hatch Black Only

Slightly cheaper but not completely watertight it turns out

and they're not round...

ah yes - sweet tone - that is more like it

if you say not completely watertight this means they create a monsoon in any compartment covering them or is it just some 'moist' entering..

thanks!

Following a Ribcraft for a few miles might produce a hatch or two.

Because, you guys made a complete balls of fitting at least one hatch.

Why not hold your hands up, apologise and make sure that it doesn't happen again. Rather than posting pics of a different hatch being fitted properly.

If you're the PR dept., perhaps you should transfer to hatch fitting.
