How to Sail a Sailboat : How to Seal a Boat Cabin After Docking

October 16, 2019

First of all, this particular boat has a little
flipped up panel here. You will notice that this side of the hatch cover is beveled and
you want to make sure that’s put back in so that the bevel is pointing down on the outside
of the boat, or outside of the cabin. That way water runs down here and it flows outside
the boat as opposed to flowing inside the boat. So we will put this on there. Usually
when you get done you will have a pretty good idea if it’s right, because when you get ready
to lock it; it won’t lock. Some boats can be rather complex. The little hatch covers.
The video, but even these little breather holes are pointed up so that any water that
hits there flows down.
