Weatherstripping for aft Lazarette
« on: November 10, 2018, 01:54:07 PM »

I have rain water leaking through my aft lazarette. I've tried a bit of weatherstripping but the engineering of the hinge and the way it opens makes it tricky.
Has anyone had success dealing with this?

Thanks, Dave

The weather stripping on our lazarette hatch is only needed on the flat surfaces on the latch (forward) and side parts.  I have found anything I put on the aft hump part comes off right away because of the geometry of the hinge side.  The leaks stopped with just the three sides done.

I had the same results as Stu on the aft surface. I plan on trying an adhesive backed foam strip on the vertical surface below the hinges. My thinking is when the hatch is closed, the foam will compress between the hatch and the coaming and the water will flow to the sides instead of down and into the aft locker. Sounds good anyway.
