Re: Hull-deck joint - suggestions needed Int'l Folkboat

I'm not familiar with an International Folkboat but how is the deck attached to the hull? I would be more worried why there is a gap there. For example if the deck is attached with bolts and they have become loose, caulking wouldn't be the first thing on my list. Do other IF's have a gap & caulking there?

If there is no structural issues, then clean all the old caulk off and use a good quality marine sealant.
