<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by Santiago II:
The most important thing with hatches is that they be watertight. A lot of hatches out there aren't. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> And another aspect to also consider is that no hatch is watertight when it is open, as will often be the case whilst loading caught fish or retrieving tackle and other gear out on the water.

Good justification for utilising an internal waterproof fish storage bag or hold that is sealed at the hatch opening. Worst case you get a couple of gallons in the bag rather than have it get into the hull proper. Mixed with the ice in the bag it should result in a great cold slurry for keeping those fish nice and fresh.

I only fish on days ending with a "Y"
