What's in the hatches?

An interesting piece of news popped up in the newscrawl... complete with a photo of a simple blue sit-on-top kayak. It appears that a shipment of kayaks was sent from China to Australia, and arrived with a boatload of dope stuffed in many of the hatches. I guess the smugglers knew the customs officials wouldn't have any idea about how heavy a kayak ought to be.
This story is making the idea of a transparent or translucent boat seem even more smart. I can picture myself in the San Juan Islands just south of here, shining a flashlight through my kayak to show a customs official that the hatches are indeed empty...
