Shearwater gasket tip

Posted by Darryl on May 27, 2006

I, like a few others have had a problem with getting the hatches flush with the supplied foam gasket. The gasket thickness and width sits on top of the hatch rim (per drawing pg. 28). My internal bungees just weren't going to pull the hatch flush. Even 40Lbs of weight wasn't enough. What worked for me is Frost King Rubber Foam Weatherseal 3/4"W-5/16"T. The thickness is slightly less & if you cut the width down to 1/2" or so it is a perfect fit after some compression. Time to put the legs on and give this table a try!
