    My forehatch has developed a leak. After investigation, it appears to coming in under the flange attached to the deck. The boat is 1990 and I guess the sealant has dried out. Is it screwed down or bolted? If bolted it looks as though I’ll need to remove the headlining which as I have found out is vvirtually impossible without a major rebuild! I was hoping to be able to reseal it easily but I’m now a bit sceptical. Advice would be much appreciated.

    I had a leak which ultimately I decided was coming under the teak. As you say dropping the headlining is a nightmare but I used leakcure on the outside on the black sealant and the problem was solved. This is a white liquid which disappears into he smallest crack and seems to seal it. Good luck.

    It is “Capt.Tolleys Creeping Crack Cure”

    This will help for a while and it is easy to use

    My hatches were all screwed down and actually quite easy to remove and refit…
