I'm going to boat tonight and i'll decide which way to go.

The only thing i don't want is to leave it on deck, i hate stuff sitting about in the elements.

cheers

I have 3 single jockeys on my searider and I can get 3 x 5lt green plastic fuel cans in just one of them The standard halfords/petrol station one's don't fit but I found some from Kingfisher marine in weymouth that fit nicely. They are a lot narrower than the usual one's I think some people call them "Peanut" cans. They fit fine just going through under the seat, which is removeable.
I would put up a picture but haven't got one

Better than cutting for a hatch.

hey mate,

just to re-iterate, the hatch opening is 4" wide, my shoes don't even fit!

It is quite handy for the likes of stapler, few envelopes or maybe a couple of fridge magnets. useless things like fenders, toolboxes, fuel cans etc don't have a look in :-). those are for pussies anyway!

cheers

I find it really odd that a boat builder would have all that usable room under a seat they have designed with no worthwhile access to it.

Plenty of room/access in mine for Waterproofs..Life Jackets...Fodder... Flasks..and other stuff you need to keep dry..
I did put a couple of acess hatches in the Ullmans to make use of some extra stowage space,but seldom use it,as I'm not at all averse to well secured stuff forward or aft on deck!....Hard to stow Camping Gear and stuff food and and ancillaries for four,unless you have a "Crib"....that's why you buy a bigger Boat!...AND it's readily available.
Like I said if it's specked with a non locker consul,which in fairness does give you a nice bit of extra space..and he doesn't want it on deck...
Put it in the Consul itself or otherwise in the anchor locker,where I tend to stow fenders,spare warps,mooring strops ,ect.
Failing that..at least the Pods will take a Hatch,unlike some I've seen!

Oh sorry must have missed that That is small, not sure what make my jockeys are but I think the opening is about 5" or 6" by 11" or 12".
