Leaking older Lewmar hatch

After sailing in some classic Lake Michigan chop and 20 knots of wind this past weekend I discovered that the forward hatch on my 1983 Ericson is leaking when there's green water on deck. Looking closely I can see that the rubber seal no longer contacts the hatch frame even when it's dogged down. I'd like to replace the seal/gasket. From the Lewmar web site I determined the model is the Superhatch. Can anyone give me some tips as to the best way to remove the old seal, where to buy a new seal, and what kind of adhesive to use installing it? Thanks in advance for any help.
The hatch is a Lewmar Superhatch.
