Re: Moisture in decks

The rubber gaskets were used in addition to sealant. I'm not sure that they make things any worse. I've rebedded the stanchions recently on my 28-2 and believe that they'd never been done before. I found that all of the holes were counterbored/beveled (which makes the sealant much more effective) and no signs of moisture anywhere.

Why do you think that the port side is normally worse?

I wonder if the PO properly bedded the teak toe rails when redoing them? That is on my project list for September.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
