Hi All,
just bought 2012 Revo 11, after bring home noticed that there is a bubble in 8" center hatch see below for picture. There appears to be no malformation on bottom of hull. So my question is this normal and or should I be worried about it?
Cheers
Greg

That is completely normal.

During the molding process there is plastic that drips off a vent - as the mold turns and the plastic melts - the vent drips plastic and it makes a spot like you see here. If they are really high the assembly guys will actually grind them down with a sander. However, = if they are just a little raised they leave them alone. (as your looks to have been) All our kayaks have this look near one of the hatches - depending on which model and where that vent is located in the given mold.
