I want to fit a 6 inch round hatch it will not be walked on however, I would like it to be watertight; any recommendations?

Cheers

I've used ones like these (I usually use 4") on sailign dinghies for years and they are tough as old boots:

My latest sailing dinghy has one of these:

Seems fine in the waterproofing front too.. Capsized a couple of times and always been fine. If I'm out in a serious blow I ship bucket loads of water over the bow and have two of these on a vertical surface that would be wet but not submerged. Always dry inside...
