Hatch also makes rigging kite easy in heavy weather as the fore deck is very small and slippy - can do lots from standing in hatch - and no need to go so far forward

I am GP26 owner / Martinoli Build,

 

We have the hatch for several reasons,

 

> Our hatch is slightly larger (I can jump in / out of) and we use for spinnaker launch / recovery

> Light and ventilation below - or else can't see anything without torch.

 

The hatch complies with Cat 4 / stability - we've been with spreaders in water 90 degrees in heavy air (kite broach) - no issue
