Hatches give you watertight storage under the decks. This standard hatch design for the Chesapeake family of kayaks is simple, inexpensive and watertight under all but the roughest conditions.
Each hatch kit makes a pair of hatches. The hatch kits include pre-cut Okoume hatch covers and frames, gaskets, straps, buckles and hardware.
Note: Hatch stiffeners can be easily modified, allowing these hatch kits to fit nearly any stitch and glue kayak with a cambered deck. Select a design similar in size to the boat you are building or contact us for guidance.
