    Looking to find/purchase and install a water-tight semi-circle hatch.

    I have an flush area approx, 9" diameter, but not a full circle instead its just over half circle 5" wide. I'd like to put in a half-round water-tight hatch. Either add a dry bag or small compartment to hold a few small items, area is maybe 12 inches deep.

    Only half rounds I've ever seen were expensive.
    300 bucks plus on sailboats. Another solution
    might be a 4 inch diameter access port.
    I use the 6 inch diameter size in the Slipper to access the rear stowage.

    B,
    Thanks for the suggestion, but 4" just won't do it. I need to maximize the opening.

    Actually I need to get access to do a fiberglass repair from the inside.

    The hatch thought was an idea to cover the spot where I need to cut into, and would look better than trying to match gelcoat colors when done.

    I did the same thing when I needed to replace a through-hull fitting that was under my front deck. I just used a 6 inch circle hatch and it got the job done.
