Hi,
in the dinette starboard side , under the couch, there is a locker that has  a battery box installed that I don't use, having the batteries in the port side.
Removing this box, which is screwed, I found a huge space to be used for storage.
The problem I want to solve is the access , that at the moment is only from above, so you need to remove all the upholstery..which is very annoying.
I'm about to cut the side of the seating to install 2 or 3 louvred doors as these https://arcmarine.eu/en/louvre-door-with-frame-30-5-x-30-5-cm/p678/

Anyone has done this yet?

On mine the box is not only screwed but also heavily sealed with some silicone or 5200. I started cutting it out but gave up. I was always curious what was underneath there.

In general I found it extremely annoying that is so difficult to get to the actual hull of the boat from inside.

This is the space below the battery box. When completed I'll put pics of what I've done (inserting 2 louvred doors on the left bulkhead in this picture)

We have got one of the latest 320s ever built. 
There is no insert in our starboard bench. You can use all the space down to the hull for storage. 
We use the top access and find it acceptable.
