Hairyguy, you'll know it's the right material if it's very soft neoprene, and looks like you could dent or tear it easily. This is the only version that will compress enough to make a proper seal.

It's less common but I found a version of it at lowes.

I hope you did get the same stuff. Sounds like something is mis-priced.

Horns2--sorry I missed your post. I long ago sold that boat (2015?) and have no idea how that seal is holding up. Sorry. Note that the posts above are back in 2013.

I use Arma flex pipe insulation as sealing for the front hatch and I make a new one after 2 summers.
Arma flex is cheap and it just take me 30 minutes to renew the hatch sealing.
I have a little bit other solution than Chekika but you asked about the material.

best regards

It is hard to know, since Hobie generally does not comment on leaks and remedies they may or may not have made. My 2015 AI 2 and 2014 TI do not leak significantly, but I think it is a crap shoot as to what you will get. Hopefully, they have improved their boats and the front hatch specifically.

Hmm @ 33-35 hundred dollars as to weather it leaks . And having a company insulating it’s self from working with it’s customers . And only doing a dance with a deal wiping boy . Is not what I call Awsome customer relations . I bought s new 2017 Outback. May be in market for a PA12 , I want more than a roll of dice . Or how a factory worker does his function on assembly line . You wouldn’t by a car with it only keeping water out sometimes. Don’t get me wrong dealers are the hero’s of the companies network . I do understand it’s a wet sport , but the wetness isn’t supposed be inside th3 hull . If I buy a PA what do I do at pick time to prove to my self this thing isn’t going leak like titanic. I would like Admin to chime in here .
