Re: Storage Hatch gaskets
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Bill, That gasket looks like it would really provide a good seal. My concern about the height of the gasket was concerning the gasket on the hinge side of a hatch. While closing the hatch it would seem that if the gasket was too high ,that the side of the gasket would first come into contact with the frame as you close it, dislodging the gasket as there is only a fraction of an inch space when closed ,between the hatch and frame. That is why I wanted confirmation that it is 1" in height before ordering it.
Enjoy your time on the 50 ,I am sure it is fun to sail and points well.

I really like what Amel is currently using on the Amel 50. It's the best thing I've seen. Photo attached.
I am training a crew the week on a brand new 50. It is an amazing Amel.
