Leaky hatch.

My front hatch has a small leak but I definately know where it is coming from. On most hatches, or at least on mine. When you close it you have to turn two handles to tighten the seal and lock the hatch closed ( about a quarter turn).

One of the handles has a few cracks. Not in the handles, but on the outside of the hatch, the little smooth head of the handle. I cannot find the words for it right now. But if you are on the outside of the boat and are looking at the hatch where one of the handles come through the plexiglass the part on the outside is cracked and that is where the leak is coming from.

Is there any way I can purcahse just the handle? I dont really think glueing it would saolve my problem but I guess I could try first. I really just thought about that........ might work.

If you know the manufacturer of the hatch, you should contact them for parts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
