The replacement Freeman Cruiser hatch rubber seal helps to prevent drafts and weather ingress from potentially damaging your boat's cabin interior. The rubber seal fits around the hatch opening on many Freeman Cruiser boats, those with built-in recesses around the hatch, including the Freeman 23, 24, 27 & 32 boats.
The Hatch Seal can be attached to the boat with black silicone. It is generally easiest to align the rubber around the top edge of the recess first so you know how the rubber reacts around the tight corners. Then remove the rubber, apply silicone to the recess and place the rubber on top. Carefully close the hatch so that the rubber sits squarely on the edge, adjust if necessary, and rest some weight on top of the hatch until the silicone has dried.
This hatch seal is not suitable for the aluminum Freeman Marine Hatches & Doors.
