Can you show a picture please.  If the cover is too small then it should have fallen through the hole.   %)

Was there a coaming or any edging to the "hole", a picture would help.

Hi Glen

The instructions point out that the hatch coamings should be made to fit inside the plasiic former before gluing in place. (I think this means that Jotika are right!  O0 ). If you have glued the coamings in place, you simply need to make the hatch cover a bit bigger to fit over them. You can probably still use the split plastic former to make the cladding pieces a snug fit over the coamings (although I haven't haven't bothered to use it at all for my Northlight).

Hope this helps.
