sliding hatch

Ive found that the sliding hatch above the companionway is allowing water to run down the metal guides and into the cabin. anyone know how i can seal that baby up without effecting its 'slide-ability?' It seems that any type of weather stripping would create too much friction.....

thanks

quick,

Is the boat on the hardstand? Bow-down in attitude in the water?

As simple as is sounds, that can often be the problem. Frequently the companionway is designed to shed aft and an unnatural attitude can be the culprit.

Quick

You may need to take it apart as the gutters/drains may be cloged with grit and dibris. I had to do that on my NTM 33' Newport. It was a farley simple job but when completed the rain stayed out of the cabin.
Aren't these winter project FUN!!!
