Through-the-Cockpit Internal Hatch Rig *Pic*

Hey Gang,
Here is an idea that has been bandied about on this board before. After my boat bit me, I went back to thinking about, the idea of building an internal hatch rig mechanism that allows a paddler to close and open their hatchs from the cockpit, with out compromising the watertight integrity of the bulkheads. The web page below has a more detailed description of the what and hows.

Thanks for all your ideas, Hope this one spurs your own creativity. :)
