  I commend your work

You've put a lot into determining hatch leak cause and I commend you for that.

It seems we have two major issues: First, a poor fit between hatch cover and frame; second, deterioration in the case of VCP hatches.

Apparently the sea-Lect hatches are made of longer-lasting material. But if there's a badly formed hatch frame, does it really solve the leak any better than a new VCP cover?
