  A hatch cover should be tight
  Posted by: FrankNC on Oct-19-12 6:11 PM (EST)

If not a wave will take it right off at the worst time possible. You'll be having trouble in waves higher than you are used to paddling and then you'll be dealing with a sinking boat. Bad deal. Don't just accept this. Find a way to modify the boat so the hatch is held down or send the boat back and get a safe one.
