Orbix hatch seals
Posted by: DUUJ on Aug-02-13 3:59 PM (EST) Category: unassigned
There must be a better way to repair "Orbix" (style) hatch seals. The original seals are often foam, and are simply horrid! Have you tried some other form of seal material with any success? Replacement neopreme hatch covers are often offered. Are they worth the cost, because it seems that they would not fit the original hatch configuration?

I agree that foam gasket under the orbix lid is terrible. However, they tend to put those Orbix covers on rec or fishing boats that wouldn't be used in rough conditions or spend much time upside down (rolling/rescue practice).
