Economy Dry hatches are made out of .062" Gauge Aluminum - a step down in thickness and stiffness from our standard Nate's Dry Hatches designed for ultra-light builds and low-traffic locations to save on weight and cost. Similar to the lid thickness you'd find on older Tracker Bass Boats.
Includes Pre-assembled hinge and welded lid. Just drop in your deck and rivet or screw it down for a strong, flex-free, and waterproof dry hatch system. Strong, lightweight, and easy to install. Get your boat build finished in no time!
Countersink rivets are suggested to attach the track system to the deck framing, these are not included.
