flush hatches

Posted by Chuck Tribe on Apr 19, 2007

I,m curious about the design of the flush hatch on the strip deck of the kayak on the CLC home page. There appears to be a line through the hatch, which I assume to be related to securing the hatch. Whatever the system, it is much more aestheic than the tabs on the flush hatch kit in the catalog. I saw flush hatches on some Pygmy kakaks, which were secured by means of a line through the bulkhead, cleated under the deck.
