Free Plans: Plywood Hatch Recesses

Posted By Dan Caouette

 Thinking of building a kayak and want to use commercial hatches (like Beckson deck plates or Kajak-Sport rubber/plastic lids) but are not sure how to mount them on your curved deck? Now you can make a simple recess out of plywood. I’m offering the files for FREE.

These are a FREE digital download of plans for stitch & glue plywood hatch recesses. There are four sizes to fit Kajak-Sport hatch rims (Round 15, Round 20, Round 24 and Oval 42/30). The 15 fits all 6″ Beckson deck plates. Use the 20 for 8″ Becksons.

They are great way to add commercial hatches and deck plates to your curved strip or stitch & glue kayak deck. These are the same ones that are included in our kayak kits. The files are FREE. Just enter your contact information on the checkout page, download the files, print the plans, cut out the parts from 3mm plywood and assemble. They include a comprehensive 8-page assembly and installation manual.

I do ask for your contact information only so I can track where the files end up. If you find them useful please consider a donation by naming your own price.
