Can anyone recommend a reasonable quality round non slip hatch about 5". once fitted I will silicone the hatch closed to ensure it stays watertight as I dont expect to have to have regular access.
I am looking for something that won't stand to far up from the deck has a flat face to avoid gathering too much crap in it.
I've been thinking of doing this ever since I bought the hull. I just stop short of making a hole in the deck everytime
I might just wait Chris and let you take the lead on this one and see how you get on. Are you sure that 5" is enough for getting clear access to setting the transponder in place?
If you don't want regular access then perhaps a nice stainless plate with 6 equally spaced holes around the outside edge, selftapped and sikaflexed into position would be OK.
