I purchased one of these at Black Creek Outfitters in Jacksonville for my Cuda. I love this thing. Snaps right in and has plenty of room for tackle box and other items.

Allows easy to reach storage for things I use a lot.Without reaching way down inside floor storage area. Under the hatch insert I'll use for things I may not need hopfully. Like an extra paddle and or maybe my dry gear and fish finder battery. In the hatch insert I have room for a few small plano boxes
Extra pliers,fishing scale and a whole lot of extra room. I just put some high powered magnets inside and on the hatch cover to hold pliers hooks and what ever else. I believe this will work well to improve my set up.I just got this so always improving this was a good investment for easy dry storage.

This is a must have but I don't understand why they don't include it with the kayak in the first place. Just trying to make $ I guess, disappointed...
Cuda Center Hatch Insert
Posted by Unknown on 25th Jun 2012
I just installed the Cuda center hatch box in my yak. I haven't been out on the water yet but I believe it is going to be very convenient. In the past, I have put everything in a rubber boat bag and reached around until I foind what I need. I htink this is going tomake it much easier to store and retrieve small items like my camera. Installs easily with a secure fit.

A must for Cuda owners!

This is an absolute must for any Cuda owner. I've gone on several kayakingt trips with this insert and it has proved to be indispensable at keeping things close at hand and secured under the center hatch. I've used it to keep ice, drinks, snacks and various lures for occasional use. It 'locks' in place by two tabs on the side that doubles as pouring spouts to dispense ice water. Installation and removal is a snap and is merely a second long. Once again, this hatch insert is worth it's weight in gold!

Once I brought home my new Jackson Cuda, I immediately went online to order the center hatch insert. It pushes into the center hatch opening and 'locks' into place by the tabs on the side of the insert that also doubles as a pouring spout. It's as spacious it can be considering the size of the opening and depth that is allowed by the Cuda. I've used mine to hold drinks, snacks, and a few bags of my favorite lures. This item is an absolute must for other Cuda owners and is worth it's weight in gold!
