      Make sure you know where the leak is before you do anything. Leaks tend to travel. As a part of this project, you might want to check the hatch is square as years of hull flexing and rig tensioning can force them out of square. Run two threads corner to corner, if they touch where they cross, the hatch is square. If there is a gap, it is out of square and you might want to get a new hatch.

      If your looking for a quick fix, coat the old gasket with electrical wire dip stuff.  We had a leak in the Bahamas and couldn't find a gasket.  The coated old gasket lasted for five years longer at least and didn't leak a drop.
