What general sizes and shapes do you guys have for your boats.

Keeping under deck stuff "mostly" or completely dry is best ?





30-33 ft build.

Shaft log hatch "size" ?

Starboard side anchor locker deck hatch "size" ?

Twin fuel tank fill cover hatches "size" ?

Rudder post hatch "size"

Rear starboard in deck baitwell hatch "size"

Rear port in deck hatch "size"

Centerline mid cockpit hatch for reach in storage forward and aft.

What make/manufacturer/size/whatever is the best bang for the $buck$ ?

Appreciated,

Bill D

I always had good luck with Freeman, my boat has a PEI Anchor hatch over the prop cleanout and it does seem to leak a bit. Over the steering there is one of those fiberglass hatches with bolts all around that one definitely leaks.
