Where can I get a decent sized hardwearing hatch?

Right, I have to fit a hatch on the deck of my boat to allow access to the rear of the fuel tank and hide the oil tank.

Where can I get a decent and not stupidly expensive hatch that I can walk on?

It needs to be pretty strong as I use the boat for diving and it will be near a bottle rack...It needs to take the potential weight of a twinset or a fatbloke diver...or both without falling through!

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Could tell you where I got mine from but they probably fall into the "stupidly expensive" bracket.

Here they are anyway

Looking at their web pages they also do an ABS hatch, would this do instead of your plastic one and instead of the very expensive one on same site.?
