Sealing issue around head.

Hey guys I have a problem with the head on my boat among other small problems. The boat used to have a foam gasket that went around the head compartment, it looks as though it has been taken apart once which was not put back together well and it does not seat up to the sink area like it should, and the gasket has deteriorated so if you ever clean it or use the shower it leaks straight through the boat so I am trying to find the beat way to solve this problem. one part of it has a hole in it where someone ran something through it so I think I am wanting to pull it all out and rebuild it. Just not to sure how the best way to do this would be. I know how to do it just not sure what I need to use. I would like to use a rubber gasket so that it will last a long time. Thanks for any help.

It's a little hard for me to picture. There are rolls of stick on rubber at the hardware store for sealing door drafts, some are pretty dense. There are tubes of silicone or other sealants. There's a spray called "Great Stuff" that is expending adhesive foam. Don't use it on anything you might want to dis-assemble.

I think I will get some photos today to show and make it easier to explain. But thanks for the info.
