I decided to try laying a gasket and see how it works.
I sanded the lips just to rough them up

Image

Then took a tube of silicon and laid down a heavy bead

Image

Then I covered it with saran wrap

Image

then eased the hatch cover into place and put presure on it till it was the right level

Image

They turned out pretty good for the first try

Image

Image

On the next one I will wrap the plastic on the hatch cover,should make it a lot easier.
I need to trim these up but am going to let them sit overnight.

Texans may come up with great ideas like this but it seems the Aussies have the best way to express congrats (besides the fact that they also come up with great ideas).

Bemm, If I may . . . I agree . . . Bloody good idea.

And that silicon also comes in other colors doesn't it, like black?

Well the gaskets are going to be alright,the boat was sitting out with the hatch cover just sitting in place no straps and I got very little water in them after 24 hours of rain.
