however even though I think my seals appeared to be intact I've found my forward hatch is no longer waterproof....I believe water wicks in through the Dyneema

BTW I bit the bullet and drilled into my boat to install Dyneema loops for my sail side stay's assurances deces, for the last five years I used two backstays which did the job in all but the worst winds, however even though I think my seals appeared to be intact I've found my forward hatch is no longer waterproof as the Dave Winkworth Nadgee has always been, I believe water wicks in through the Dyneema, although my Sealect hatch could be the culprit, saw an installation once on the net where someone made a pingpong ball size cup and sealed it over the internal fixing, can't find the article, any ideas on this one, apart from smearing loads of sikaflex over the problem, Thanks,
