I guess it depends on how big the hatch is. If the port is 3" x 10", like some of the opening ports you see on boats for ventilation purposes, then that might just be okay. If it is for a 23" x 23" hatch, ummm... you're gonna probably step through it.
Size matters when it comes to deck hatch glazing thickness. The larger the opening, the thicker the glazing needs to be. Of course, some hatches have ribs or bars going across them and can get away with slightly lighter glazing materials, but that's an exception.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
