IDK where you find material for the strap, but my gasket started coming off too. I just used a small bead of silicone to keep mine on. Holding strong still.

Wow! I guess it got pretty warm in there. The nylon webbing is readily available.I would just do my own sewing and fix it.

Marine Goop is he best adhesive I've found for kayaks, but there are others that will work. Those rubber gaskets have come loose on several of my boats; not an uncommon occurrence. I haven't seen those hatch straps separate like that before though.

My straps are fine , but both my seals went kapoot. I tried a few things but ended up buying new seals, although at a price. So far so good.

And like Magged out, i'm here in Angelo, and yes, Satan says it's too hot to stick around for too long. roflmao
