Has anyone successfully installed larger storage in the hulls? I see the bin below the hatch is molded as part of the hull. Nervous about cutting them out to install a drop in bin and hatch. Would it weaken the hull integrity? Might I have issues with flooding the hull upon capsize if not sealed well? There are the hatches (13"x30") and bins I want to use to replace the standard storage coolers in the Getaway hulls. They are 2x as deep and 2x as long. Similar width as current.

Hatch: http://www.westmarine.com/buy/tempress- ... 20_002_003

Bin: http://www.westmarine.com/buy/tempress- ... 20_003_515

Would love to hear from Matt Miller on this from Hobie perspective and also from anyone that has modified their Hobie with larger storage or other ideas.
