  day hatch OR deck hatch, not both!
  Posted by: abc on Sep-06-12 11:12 PM (EST)

If there's already a deck hatch, AND the expectation is the paddler doesn't access the day hatch on water, then there's no need for the day hatch. Just keep the whole rear section as one compartment! 80% of the boats out there don't have day hatch after all.

If it takes another paddler to access it, might as well be just a regular rear hatch. More room for storage without that extra wall and hatch hardware.
