Waterproof hatch

How waterproof are anchor locker hatches supposed to be? My Ribcraft one lets in rainwater despite the rubber seal appearing to be intact. It's fairly old do I need a new hatch or can I get new rubber seals?

Mine's fine although the hatch on the front of the console is a bit leaky. Check to see if the seal hasn't trapped a rope recently (there'll be an indentation). If it has, leave it open for a few days so it can regain its shape.

You should have a look at this: To all you Ribcraft owners

Might be your issue?
