I was adjusting a hatch dog when the bolt snapped. Then it started to rain, and rain hard. So the hatch started leaking. I went outside and jammed a wad of butyl along the edge against the glass and the aluminum frame. The butyl stuck to the wet glass and the wet aluminum and sealed the leak completely. Held in hard rain for 2 days till I could do a remove/repair of the snapped bolt
