Best used for retrofitting Necky and Old Town kayaks outfitted with the Space Hatch (with hinge) or Rubber Hatch (egg shape). This panel can also be used for other purposes, such as custom made skid pates, rudder pin blocks, Slide Trax fishing gadgets for fish rod holders, skeg blades, kayak sail mounts and foot plates. 12.5 x 18 x 3/8 inches.

The hatch retrofit process will be fairly simple. First remove the old hatch from the kayak (might be secured with screws or rivets). Kayaks with molded rims will have to cut off with a jig saw or Dremel tool. Clean off the old sealant. Use the old rim as your template, if possible, to cut out the shape and drill the holes. Cut a round hatch hole in the panel (see info below). Seal the new hatch rim, to the panel with silicone sealant and secure to panel with stainless steel screws and nuts. Next, seal the panel to the kayak deck with silicone sealant and secure to panel with stainless steel screws and nuts. Wipe up excess sealant before it sets. Wait for sealant to set and apply new hatch cover to new rim.

 The Space Hatch (with hinge) and the Rubber Hatch (egg shape) both came in Small or Large sizes. Get the 10 In. Hatch Lid and Ring kit for replacement of the large size. Get the 6 In. Hatch Lid and Ring kit for replacement of the small size. The process will be similar to a deck plate hatch install.

This panel can also be used as a simple patch, No Hatch, to seal off the hatch hole completely.
