Maximum is 4. Minimum is 3

Rule 5.1

Inspection Hatches & Drain Plugs
a. One inspection hatch must be fitted in each buoyancy tank.
b. Side inspection hatches to be fitted midway between the centrecase bulkhead & the thwart.
c. Watertight drain plugs may be fitted to any cockpit panel, including the transom, provided all buoyancy tanks remain sealed and drain plugs in place whilst sailing.
d. Two hatches may be fitted to the forward tank to aid construction.
