Edge mount hatches

Post by fishgitr » Tue Oct 17, 2017 6:18 pm

In the La Flaca FS18 build the guy used edge hatches front and back. I am unable to locate them. Anyone have any ideas? I am unable to post a picture of them from my phone.

I was thinking about the ones you sent me but they are pretty small and a bit out of my price range. And I still haven't got it in me to attempt them myself.

I saw that hatch on La Flaca's build and really liked it. I think he mentioned in the thread where he got it, I bought one for my boat around five years ago. Seems like it came from Great Lakes Skipper, and was a Mako hatch. I just took a look and don't see it at their site now, though.

Travis,

Take a look at this site I found. They make aluminum hatches and they look pretty nice. They even have an edge mounted hatch!

Also, I will swing by the Marine Liquidation place down the road from us and see if they have any of those hatches.
Talk to you soon,
Reid
