Leaky Drybox

So my drybox had these leaks from almost all of the bolts. These pictures were taken after about two (admittedly splashy) hours of rafting. Should I just tighten them up and call it good or get in touch with the company?

If they have a rubber washer just try tightening them. If you are going to use a sealant I would use Lexel.

If manufactured locally, I'd have them fix it. It might not just be your drybox that leaks, they deserve to know, as much as you deserve to have them fix it.
