These hatch covers were originally installed on boats with a fiberglass storage box installed under the foredeck. In addition to space forward in the compartment, the fiberglass storage compartment allows for this bag and its contents, fastened at the aft end of the compartment, to expand forward into the compartment for increased storage space in the bag.
Early boats were built with access to the entire cavity under the foredeck for storage. This large compartment was originally equipped a wooden door to keep the water out. Unfortunately, if that door accidentally opens
during a capsize, the entire bow could fill with water, swamping the boat. For safety, some owners have retrofitted the early boats with these fiberglass storage boxes which limits the amount of water to a few cubic feet rather than hundreds of gallons.

2) This style hatch cover was only used on earlier boats with fiberglass storage compartments until about 1996. In 1997, Capri redesigned the boats and installed a plastic hatch with two twist latches to close in place of the canvas cover. That boat used a different style halyard bag. If you have the newer style plastic hatch, shown below, give us a call and we can help you order the correct bag.
3) If you have one of the really early boats with an wood hatch board, give us a call and we can look at some possible halyard bag options for your boat.
4) When you order a special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!
