Re: Improvised Repairs

Run a loop from the hatch handle to something below tighten it and use a Spanish windlass to get it real tight.
I've found that a bicycle tire tube, split, is great for wrapping around a leak in a hose type device. I used it to wrap my shaft seal gland to do remove it to work on it afloat.
