The storage hatch is an important feature of our kayaks allowing you to store items close at hand. It comes in 2 sizes, this large 26cm hatch and our small 20cm hatch.
The storage hatch comes with an inserted splash bag that allows you to keep material in place and not sliding along the inner hull of the kayak. The splash bag is made of plastic woven fibres that will repel water from it. The splash bag is not waterproof and for peace of mind we recommend you place all delicate equipment inside a dry bag.
This hermetically sealed storage hatch measures 26cm in diameter and comes with a locking pin mechanism.
The inner seal of the lid is made of rubber and surrounds the inner lip of the lid. The seal can erode over time by exposure to things like water, salt and sun and we recommend you look after it and replace it from time to time. Our experience tells us that in rare instances where people experience water seepage, misused or broken hatches are often the cause of it.
The storage hatch comes with an external foam tape that stops any unwanted water from filtering in through the outside of the hatch. It is fundamental to place this foam correctly and seal the ring properly when installing a new hatch.
This hatch can be installed on most kayaks that are designed for one of these dimensions.
The installation process is reserved for professionals and we do not recommend you try this at home. Galaxy Kayaks is not responsible for any hatch installed after the purchase of one of our kayaks.
