Thanks Celia... as always, a comprehensive and well thought-out answer to a question.

And yes, it was a major wrestling match with an oval Valley hatch (while noting how much easier the round VCP hatches were) that in part prompted this inquiry.

There are a couple of boats I'm looking at that are all-round-hatches... Tiderace Xcite and NDK Explorer, for instance. Obviously I'm not going to make a buying decision based mostly on THAT, but it is one more factor on the list.

Btw, did not know that Kayak Pro hatches sink. 'Tether it' indeed. Though obviously it's a good idea no matter what.
