Hatch gasket material

I used automobile trunk gasket material purchased at the local auto parts store. Haven''t taken any green water over the bow to give it the acid test, but it hasn''t leaked for the last five years with heavy rain and regular hosing down.

Hatch gasket material

Ahh...there is only one type of gasket to use...

Go to an appliance outlet and order some refrigerator "D" shape gasket material.
Cut the strip into whatever lengths you need and apply it to both the top and bottom for an excellent watertight seal.

Who`da thunk?
