Re: Leaking deck hatch latch

Where is it leaking? I have a 54 but we have Southco latches, too. One was leaking on the shaft. If you see rust on the shaft itself, it's likely the o-ring on the shaft. Take it apart and replace the o-ring and you're good to go. Arno was the first to do it (to my knowledge) so search for his posts.

If it's the sikaflex, just unbolt the whole latch and reseal. 

No need nor advantage to replace the whole thing.
