Re: enlarged front hatch

Posted by Mike G on Jul 23, 2004

I am curious if I enlarge the front hatch cover on my C18 if it will cause structural problems. I will be making a recessed hatch cover and provide a laminated shelf for the cover to rest on that will encircle the hatch opening. Will this laminated shelf provide me with enough rigidity to enlarge the hatch opening to within 3" of the side of the kayak?
