My boat was restored before I purchased it. In that process I think they made a new hatch cover out of flat stock plastic. It SEEMS to fit nicely, but apparently leaks because when it rains the bin below it fills with water. I might consider making a new hatch cover if I thought I could slow down the leaking.
So here is my question. Does anyone have a picture of the original Omega 14 hatch cover so I can look at the original design for a reference? Jim

Thank you. That is completely different that what I presently have. It appears much better made and much more water resistant. I will be thinking about duplicating something like yours out of wood and fiberglass. Although.....now that I look closely. ...mine is somewhat different. Is the black gasket I see recessed in grove, or just weather stripping?

That looks pretty secure and water tight. My design is different. I am going to try putting some household weather stripping down and see how that works. Thanks for your help. Jim
