Forward Hatch and anchor locker leaks

Postby GBL-007 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 9:14 pm

I recently purchased a 1990 P-23 and the boat has two minor leaks after heavy rains. One is around the forward hatch and the other appears to be under the anchor locker. Has anyone had to repair leaks in either of these areas? This is my first sailboat, so I'm a bit of a novice on where to start to fix these things. I took a close look at the hatch and the gasket and caulk around the hatch look ok. Any suggestions as to how to diagnose or fix these leaks would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I had a leak around my 1991 P-27 forward hatch. I unmounted it. cleaned the frame and fiberglass mounting surface and remounted it with 5200. You can also use some of the other caulks, like Boat Life.

Return to P-23
