We mould a 50mm flange on the inside of the base, captive nuts are then bonded on the inside of this.
We can then put foam rubber seal on this flange.
The seat is then put back on and through bolted to the captive nuts.
This gives a good seal, if you want to be double water tight you can then put a thin bead of sealant in the join.
We do this to make the tank accesible should any water/dirt get in or, the tank start to leak.
This is far better than having to cut the deck up.
