Menger 19 Deck Hatch

Hello, I am a new owner of a 1996 Menger 19 ! Had it up to Maine this weekend and was a great sail. 


I have a question, I would like to replace my 6" round deck hatch (in the cockpit) with a 10"X13" deck hatch to access the stuffing box and bilge pumps. 


Can this be done without adding support under cockpit deck?

Generally I'd try to reinforce deck, just because.
More importantly , if it's cored, be sure to thoroughly seal edges with a good penetrating epoxy, and seal mounting bolt holes.
