How is the deck sealed. The cover looks pretty nice but wondering if you think it is going to be water tight? I see in the product photos there is a rasied lip on the deck, is the any kind of gasket on the hatch cover?

Were I to get one, I think I'd replace the deck shroud plates with higher grade fittings, like off a Seawind, and replace the string sheets/lines with Nylon coated SS leader and SS turnbuckles. (I do that on all of my boats) kind of habit I've gotten into. Looks great and makes tuning the sails a snap.
