Is it warped? I don't remember it leaking on my brother's 2002, and we had it 10 miles offshore more than once.

Also, is it when you are coming off plane and backing off the throttle too quickly, allowing water to come up over the transom and into the splashwell?

I thought it was warped to so I got the no# off the plate
and install a new one same thing. When iam offshore we drift over spots for rock cod ect.. and sometimes or a lot time waves go into the splashwell . I have sealed the bottom gasket. Then I had to test it at home pluged the splashwell holes ran hose in there . And it seam to leak worse by hings
I have been trying to find a water tight one but no luck

Is the cover leaking or the rim?

On the oblong hatch in my splashwell the gasket is well inside the hinges and with two locking tabs pull it down pretty well. Could you not look for a better design in a larger hatch and cut a larger hole to suit? Mine is around 10" x 16" and I cut the hole to replace the original 8" circular deck plate. Seaswirl Striper 2101 so I assume a similar size splashwell.

If you seldom need access try putting som 3M 3511 (shrink wrap) tape over the seems.

I thought about putting a different cover on there but I will have cut a bigger hole . I am worried about the gel coat and the fiberglass cracking or spider. Have no idea how to keep that from happening? Any suggestions on how to do that

Tape was what I used when I did mine - plus a nice fine toothed blade - make a couple of practice cuts before you get to the edge you need to cut - plus of course there is quite a flange on a hatch, so as long as you're using plenty of sealant, no need to worry about the cut being too perfect.

3M 5200 or 4200 between the hatch frame and the boat. slather the gasket with silicone grease.
