Just picked up an older Impex Seabreeze (can you tell the year of production from the last 2 digits of serial?) It has a plastic hatch cover with 2 latches instead of the rubber hatches I am used to.
I noticed, the newer Sea Breeze kayaks have rubber hatch covers. Are rubber hatch covers better? The plastic hatch cover with latches, seem like a better cover since it doesn't seem like it can pop off easily and the seals look good.... but only played with it for a minute or so...are they more likely to break over time?
