Forgive the grainy pic but you get a good idea how hatch looks. Has 3 nice twist toggles that hold the canvas bag, especially useful for stowing halyards and many other things! And there's a latch (can't see it here) that secures everything. I'll have my tarp off in the near future and can send better pics then. BTW I spoke with Catalina Direct and they don't sell the hatch.
