Leaking deck hatch

Rain water is getting into the area under the rear deck hatch on my Mainship Pilot. I can't see any leaks from the scuppers using a hose. I do see some leaks around the t-handles that secure the hatch if I spray a hose on them. The leak is in the center where the handle pivots 45 degrees to lock the hatch. Is there a way to repair and make watertight? Both handles are doing the same.

Hmm. Id be careful. Sounds like you might need to reseal the entire latch assembly. You might want to take a few pics and post for ideas. The members of this Mainship website have a lot of good tips.

I ordered new latches. Looked too difficult to take apart and rebuild.
