It would help if you said where you were located as well as what kind of baot that you were working on.

You may need to use a razor to cut the bedding material away from the glass. Then remove the glass. After the glass is out, you can remove whatever bedding material is left.

You could contact a local glass company to find out about getting replacement seals. The bedding compound that they're using might be a butyl-rubber gasketing compound that is often used on car windshields.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
