is leaking badly on my used Combi 359. This same deck box is used on the Kodiak, Seayak and other models as well. Does some type of flat washer or O-ring fit under the hatch cover to form a tight seal? I’d like to know what type of gasket came with the kayak when new so I can make the deck box water tight again. Thanks.
I send some email to the Prijon folks…
…Mine have held up real well.
did you get it new?..
…I wonder if it may have gotten cross-threaded once.
My combi did the same thing, actually what happened is the rubber O-ring that has a groove cut into one side and then sits on a little ridge around the rim, tore away from that ridge and was pretty much impossible to get back on. I gave up and put a nice bead of the ever popular, cure-all, aquaseal in it’s place and it was much better. Not perfect but unless I was taking serious amounts of water over the deck, it stayed pretty dry. Loved my Combi, but I always thought that was a terrible design.
O-Ring or Flat Gasket
It’s used. There is no gasket on the cover and I wanted some idea of what to try and order from Prijon or look at the auto parts store for something that would fit.
