Here is something a little unusual. We wanted to have something to show clients the difference between our hatches being anodized and not. Our anodizing supplier was able to do this for us. Right now, I’m going to be taking this to show to some local boatbuilders and get their feedback. We use a grade of aluminum for our hatches which offers the most durability to salt water, and the anodizing goes a step further and protects your investment.
Although not as common; we do get inquiries on our larger hatches to have a smaller access hatch. Here is a recent example where we did 2 of these for a client. The anodized hatch measures 48″ x 48″, and the smaller hatch in the centre is one of our 12×12 Quick Release (ANC QR 1212) models. We also installed some more solid lift handles as opposed to the lift rings on our regular models.
