These are some serious quality hatches that should last. Using this 18x30 Hatch on top of my rear Bench seat to house 4 batteries on my 1648 Jon. Plenty of room and access to house two G31 AGM's, a G28AGM and a 16-volt lithium to power my graphs and transducers. Room for the chargers as well. Thanks, TBN for the awesome product.
