{Stus-List} Removal of A&H Hatch

Speaking of these hatches - does anyone know where I might get a suitable
sealing gasket for between the Plexiglas and the frame - something round
would seem to be perfect as both have a concave indentation on at least 3
edges. The PO had found a half-round gasket but it has come loose. Something
like they use to fill gaps in industrial window installations would seem
perfect- if there was a good way to adhere it.

My A&H hatches were attached with screws and bedded in butyl. Sounds like
some idiot used something like 5200 to glue them down. Those bits of white
plastic could be epoxy used to fill the former screw holes. 

You may be able to get something like a high E guitar string under the frame
enough to cut through the black goop, or you could try Anti-bond 2015 to
break down the goop. Good luck.

Hi Folks - 


I have two small Atkins & Hoyle hatches (8x15) which developed leaks around
the frames.  Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to remove the frames from
the deck.  There are four holes in the top of the frames under which some
sort of fasteners should be located.  Each of the holes is filled with
hardened black "goo", but I can't seem to dig the goo out to get to a metal
screw.  As I dug down with an ice pick, some small chips of a white plastic
type substance, almost like hard epoxy, came out.  Is it possible these
hatches were attached with plastic or resin fasteners?  This doesn't sound
right to me, but I thought I would ask before I do any more excavation.  If
anyone has any experience removing these hatches, I would appreciate their
