Excellent points from the Rumster, Stan will have the gasket material - major correction to accomplish. Need be, you could use screen door gasket material from Home Depot as an immediate remedy, although not permanant. A picture of how you can see thru would reveal if the hatch has possibly warped or the hatch hinges are damaged. Ask the former skipper. In any case the Rhodes does not make into a comfortable bathtub for your wife.
I have suggested previously that our boat makes into an incredible motor cruiser whenever the sailing rigors seem inconvenient. It becomes a spacious boat for party animals with boomroom in place.

Photo's would be helpful, but the hatches should seal all the around to
prevent water infiltration. You definitely have a problem which you need to
solve. Were the hatches factory installed????

Reminder: Just got my Rhodes and having dealt with flooding due to faulty
repair finally have "normal" questions. Heres the first:
I have the two hatches on either side and just in front of mast. Seem in
perfect condition but when I close and latch securely there is a
gap in front (I can see out) and on sides (gap on sides decreases to almost
nothing at rear). The hatches can't be pulled down tighter as back can go
down no further.
NIce for ventilation as straight rain can't get in but looks like high
would bring in significant rain.
Also, if get in big waves and take one over the bow would bring in quite a
bit of water.
Are there supposed to be some kind of gaskets?
