This is a GREAT POST. I went to the site. The photos really help to understand the problems. Good job. I hope others post here.

Cool site. I like the thru hull advise in the first one.

The more you use your boat, the more things happen out there...
Here's a more interesting photo of an at-sea "incident". What looked like a scratch may've been a hairline crack, which totally broke on a stormy open ocean crossing.

(can't wait to replace that ugly hatch though- looks like Frankenstein's)
Wait to you see what they charge for acrylic hatch material, your patch will begin to look beautiful!
