Hatch Cover advice and sealant use. Gaspachi round hatch kit?

Post by Maverick777 » Sat Jul 14, 2018 10:45 am

Hi All,

I have recently purchased a second-hand Ocean Kayak Malibu TWO XL. I am considering fitting two rubber hatches. There is also the option of adding a round Gaspachi Hatch to a specially moulded section of the kayak between the front and rear seating positions. However there is also the option of adding an oval Gaspachi hatch, which gives greater storage. This is located adjacent to the centre seat. But the Gaspachi covers seem a tad expensive and I think the oval hatch looks even more complicated and considering the issues I'm having with my Tarpon 120, I'm not that struck on the idea.

Are their any other options and what sealant does one use when fitting attachments to kayaks?

Thanks
