Rebeddding/glazing hatch windows

We need to re-bed or reglaze the hatch windows on this boat we are fixing up. My question is what is the best material to reveal these leaking hatches. Thanx

Re: Rebeddding/glazing hatch windows

water to reveal the leaks bytle tape to stop it or proper rubber gasket material to fit the needs of your specific vessel and its port holes

Re: Rebeddding/glazing hatch windows

When I replaced the hatch plastic I used the silicone that the auto industry uses to install windshields. ( Sorry I forgot where I found it) That was two years ago and it still looks good and does not leak. I know sailboat owners do not like to use silicone but it worked well for me.

That's not the kind of silicone sealer that everyone complains about. The windshield sealer is more like Dow 795 - it is extremely adhesive and has to be because windshields are structural components in cars now, not just caulked windows like they were in the past.

"Silicone" covers a lot of ground depending on the additives - it's not all bathtub caulk.

If it smells strongly of vinegar (acetic acid) don't use it.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
