Replacing Forward Hatch, Need help
I am the original owner of a 1978 Hunter 27.
I need to replace the forward hatch. I see nproblem installing a new one, but getting the old one out is the issue.
It appears that the hatch is recessed and form fitted to the deck cut out.
I am considering trying to pry it out with putty knives (to break the water tight seal) or cutting it with a Multitool from the top, and taking it out in pieces. Obviously I do not want to damage the deck, or I will have difficulty making a water tight seal with the new hatch.
Has anyone had experience with something like this?
