What I have seen done for this type of hatch is to take what the airplane guys call wing saddle tape. It is a dense foam tape of various thicknesses and widths. They put it on the inside of the hatch along the outer edge so when the hatch is closed the tape contacts the edge of the lip on the boat. Guys have told me they have never had any water get in when using this method. The tape comes as thin as 1/8 inch and is not porous. Hence water will not soak through it.

I understand that the state of Wisconsin was the antenna for the very low frequency transmissions to submarines. My group did mapping for it.

I believe you're referring to the ELF system. And yes, northern Wisconsin contained part of the antenna with Minnesota containing the rest. What they did was to take upwards of 1500 miles of high power electrical transmission lines out of the power grid and that became the long wire antenna. I know they tried different lengths and what they settled at I don't know. It quite literally thumped the ground and took that route to the subs.
