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!
