Removing hatches

Most times such hatches are simply held in place with old caulk, usually silicone. To aid in removal, get some ''piano'' wire and make a ''garotte'' - long length of wire held bewteen two sticks. Attempt to slip the wire under the exposed lip and ''see-saw'' back and forth with the garotte to cut the caulking.
