Hatch stiffener needed for wood duck hybrid hatch?

CLC included a hatch stiffener with my hybrid kit.  Since there is no mention of installing it in the manual, I am assuming it is used onl with the plywood deck hatch, but I just want to make sure.

 

Thanks.

Hi Rich,

I am building a WD12 hybrid from plans.  Your right, the stiffener is on the parts list but not at all in the manual. 

I am going to see how stiff the hatch turns out when finished.  It is 1/4 inch thick with glass on both sides so I am thinking that will be strong enough.  If not, then I will deside what to do next.

Lou,

 My hatch is complete and looks pretty darn strong.  It would also be a shame to epoxy the stiffener to such a beautiful cedar stripped hatch
