I need to install a water tight deck hatch in the stern of my boat. The boat is not a downeast, it's a 23 mako with a 200 outboard on it. I had a 19 seaway for a long time and the next boat will be a downeast for sure. I am just looking for suggestions from guys on this forum.

I am thinking just some sort of plastic hatch maybe 10" x 24" hinged with a water tight seal on it. Any suggestions?

I will check it out. Right now I have two round access hatches that need to be popped out with a screwdriver everytime I want to get in there. They are far from watertight anymore which I really dont like. It would be much easier with some sort of hatch. Thanks Again!

It's a BEC I guess... Out of hamiltons needed something to just get thru till next season. Going to install it tomorrow, let you know how that goes.
