    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.

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


    That’s excellent news! Thanks for that!
