Replacing Houdini hatch with Gebo
06.02.2019 at 10:45:48
 
After years of Houdini leakiness, I'm going Gebo. Has anyone had any experience with these - are they simply drop-in replacements on the 501?

As no separate rubber seal was supplied, does it simply require a butylrubber sealant to be applied between the hatch and the deck?

I’m also a bit confused; I’ve bought a Flushline hatch and the fitting/operating instructions mention a “Gebo deckhatch” and “Flushline hatch” (the latter being “especially designed for use on powerboats”). I've asked the chandlery and Gebo for advice; alas, nothing yet...

I have also got a gebo hatch to replace the Houdini one but still need to fit. I believe it does just drop in but the fixings are in different locations so a bit of filling and drilling will be required. I've got some Arbomast to bed the hatch on when I get round to doing it. Keep us posted as to how you get on.
