I bought a plastic tempest 170 last fall. At the time of purchase I was concerned about the hatches, they just didn't fit well, even with the bungees provided to seal the hatch covers tighter. This spring my worst fears were confirmed when on a four day IDW I found water in all three hatches. The hatch covers on this boat just don't fit tight and the bungees don't do the job either. Really this is a well designed boat, paddles well and handles well. The problem is that it is positivly dangerous not to have watertight hatches. Wilderness Systems needs to address this problem before someone gets hurt.
