Wood hull -- sealing question?

I am almost dreading asking this, but here goes.

I have a 1949 32' Monk Cruiser located in Vancouver BC. I have the boat out on the hard for a few items and want to caulk a number of the wood hull seams.

My question is whether someone here knows whether Sikaflex (291?) will bond with damp seams? My read of their literature says all wood must be completely dry; but several local folk claim it can be used successfully on damp (i.e. somewhat dry) seams.

Current weather is approx. 1-8 degrees C/ 32-45 degrees F; and the boat is out of the rain under a partially enclosed work barn.

I am hoping for advise from people who have actual experience with this situation,

Thanks folks,

Brian
