Outback Hatch Upgrade
« on: December 13, 2013, 10:22 AM »
Went out yesterday to test it out and see how easy it was to open and close while sitting in the yak and just as easy as the circle. Can leave my feet on the peddles and just chicken leg a little and it opens up and can pull the boxes out as needed.

If you want to add this make sure to order seals separate, for some reason they do not seem to include with the hatch.

I'll wait till you use it on the water a while.
Due to current economic conditions the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

I have a question about the mesh pockets your using I was wondering if I could mount them with pop rivets? I bet these are super handy for small things you would like to have at reach.
