    Hi All,
    I have two 1993 Hunter 23.5s and both leak a lot of water in the starboard cockpit locker where the gas tank is located. Don't see how it could possibly happen but it does. Any ideas?

    If I recall the lip which the locker lid comes down either had a rubber seal in it or not. Sorry folks but I tend to be forgetful but would ask Sky2sail to take a photo and lets see what is going on. That is first as a reminder and then to see if there is any gunk in the spacing. Then I need to see how much is stored in the back of the boat and if there are more than one battery. It also could be the hinges are leaking. Without a photo I am in the dark. So how about a photo or two of each hatch lid up and a little more explanation as to what I discussed so we can get a better feel on how to answer you sir.
