what deck hatch

Can anyone advise of any really sturdy plastic deck hatches - round, square & rectangle , not too large, that are sturdy enough to be stood on? im looking to do it on a bit of a budget or i would use aluminium bomar type hatches.

Is there such a thing? Previously fairly flimsy ones have been used that have been broken.


Thanks

They look great, ill call them tomorrow. I suspect they will be as expensive as some alloy hatches as they are for mod. Ideally something like these or slightly larger would fit the bill quite well. There seems to be loads of cheap lightweight hatches on the market, and some really heavy duty ones that are very expensive but nothing inbetween... just need something simple that can be stood on

I've got one of the 8" round ones in my deck for the access to the sounder transducer, it cost about 200 iirc. You could drive a tank over it.
