Re: Leaking Window-Hatch
Can you find replacement gaskets? The next step is to try to determine if it's leaking a) through the gasket seal, b) through the lens/frame interface, or c) under the flange/deck connection. This can be tough to ascertain, but redoing the gasketing is a good place to start. On a previous boat with aluminum Bomars we really had to cinch down the latches to minimize leakage.. the gaskets were getting old and compressed.
