Channelglaze Ltd is a stockist of Houdini and Gebo deck hatches, offering you an all round, hassle free solution for your boat. Deck hatches are incorporated on boats for extra ventilation, additional light and often as an additional escape route.

Please note: All hatches must be fitted to a flat surface and bedded down on a good quality non-setting mastic.
