Assembly drawing for Marinium Fuel cap?

I have noticed that there is about 1/16 gap under the outer aluminum ring of my fuel cap between it and the cockpit floor. When I get water in the cockpit it drips through onto the top of my fuel tank. Fortunately it does not seem to be entering into the tank.
I was looking to see if anyone can point me in the direction of an assembly drawing.

I'm thinking that I can undo the three screws, lift off the outer alum ring, cut a rubber gasket to go on the under side of the ring and re-assemble?

I don't want any surprises when I undo the screws hence my post.

Try this stuff. It was specifically developed to bed things on boats.

Can you see why the ring doesn't sit flush? It seems odd to me that there is a gap.

Re: Assembly drawing for Marinium Fuel cap?

That's almost a guarantee that the balsa core in the area will be rotted. Don't know how to pull the fill assembly but would do it asap. If the core is bad in the area but hasn't extended far, fill space between the laminate skins with thickened epoxy after cleaning out the immediate area as best as you can. Only need to fill in an inch or so so the outer laminates don't crush together. Caulk with a fuel resistant caulking compound, that's NOT Butyl or Dolphinite which both dissolve in the presence of hydrocarbons.

Iím guessing there is already a gasket that doesnít seal well, with the rough non-skid. The trick may be to grind it down or fair it out smooth.

You wonít need a drawing. Remove the hose from below and the three deck screws and Iím sure youíll figure it out.
