Does anyone else leave their front hatch white box liner at home when they go out? I've been ditching it lately and am wondering if the front hatch will seal out water just as well without the liner if I flipped over on the water. Anyone ever tried it out?

I went exactly the other route. I found that when peddling thru heavy chop, the front hatch liner collected a lot of water. Most of it stayed in the liner, and out of the hull...which is probably for the best. I decided to double down on sealing the front hatch by adding a Trim Lock Seal around the hatch liner.

Here is the thread I started a couple of weeks ago...
