Drats! There’s still water getting in to Marc’s rear compartment. Jim swapped his cover to see if it helped but discovered the problem is actually the lip around the hatch is deformed causing both sides to narrow and leak. We are talking floppy loose fit!
Quick fix is duct tape around the entire lip to build it up. It helped a little.
Plan now is to take a zero day in Fort Walton and make arrangements to get replacement yak. That’s the safer option once we hit the Gulf soon.
More details soon.
