Aren't there ways to modify the mounting of the furler to not interfere?
You could put the furler above the hatch, but then the furler is out of plane with the rest of the lines and hardware. This small angle makes a surprising difference ie difficulty with smooth furling action.
I was looking at it a few days ago, I wonder if one could use a heatgun and gently bend the hatch in at the point where the furler makes contact? more drastically, I also thought of cutting a 1cm notch out of the hatch to allow the furler unimpeded motion if its put on the mast as low as possible (as close to the mast receptacle as possible)
I like my Rev 11 but would appreciate a dryer seat and the ability to mount sail furler so the front hatch does not interfere, more flat areas for mounting rod holders etc. but overall it's fast and a lot of fun.
There is a user here who did make a self-draining modification for his revo seat, look at posts by Revo_1756
As for more flat areas for mounting rod holders... now you're straying into Outback territory
