Didn't like having to drape an extension cord through the hatch to connect to my permanently mounted charger in the boat. Had to watch every time I closed the hatch not to catch the cord also not real happy about rain etc. and not protected connection. Fitted a Clipsal IPV6 socket (male end) on the port side of the transom entry way just under the fold down seat. Also attached a screw on female socket to the extension cord - nice waterproof connection when drawing mains power to charge batteries. I got access to to do the fitting via factory fitted access hatch, remove flotation, wire up and fit inlet, replace flotation and replace access hatch cover.
