Access hatch and deck plate purchase

Well, I finally decided to just purchase the large access hatches for the floats. I was investigating latches for my own design when I realized I would be spending way to much time on this.

So I just ordered the following from Bomar.

6 of G824-W deck plates (screw in type with 5 3/4" diameter opening).
2 of G71317-W access hatches (with outer dimensions of 17 1/2" x 13")

It also helps that the Canadian loonie is now worth more than the American greenback! This helps but I am certain that at our 'free trade border' I will be dinged for Canadian taxes and a brokerage fee.
