Rebed hatch glass

I need to re-bed the hatch glass on my two hatches on our 1994 BI40 because they leak and have read conflicting opinions about what product or chemical composition to use.
Any suggestions?

Re: Rebed hatch glass

What material is the hatch? We have bomars with lexan. we used Dow 795 between lexan and powder coated aluminum, and butyl between the hatch and fiberglass deck. Two years and zero leaks.

Also used Dow 795 and butyl on Atkins Hoyle hatches with plexi.

Use painters tape on the frame to give you a clean edge and less clean up.

Select Plastics seems to be the most experienced company in hatch refurbishment. Here is what they say about the subject: Which Sealants To Use – Selectplastics
