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.

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.
