Re: Sealing hull-deck joint

Christian, I hope not. I have some serious leaks that I need to tackle in the next few weeks because the water starting to damage the wood inside. I was trying to find the source and noticed that it looked like the fiberglass was weeping from the inside. My guess is that the water is traveling in and down along the glass to a spot where it can come out. Unfortunately, there are a LOT of possible intrusion areas near where I saw the water. I'm going to try rebidding the windows and jib car tracks first, then the stanchions, and then finally, if that doesn't solve it, I'll look at the hull/deck joint.
