    You can do it like that, but it would be easier if you take the cables off.

    If the gasket hasn't pushed out you can try tightening the bolts. I'm not sure what the torque spec is on those bolts, but they require some leverage to prevent leaks. I weigh 200 lbs and I put every bit of my weight into the wrench when tightening.

    Despite what you're being told, never reassemble (or assemble for that matter) the TA using silicone. If you use the rubber gasket, bowl ring and some white grease, it'll never leak and taking it apart the next time will be cake. The only time you need to use silicone, unless you're lazy, is if you have a set back.

    Nice looking boat.
