Check the windows as most of them need to be recaulked using an ultraglaze sealant by GE. It is a great boat to singlehand, very versatile and has great lines. Added a autohelm to make singlehanding a breeze(rolller furling came with it). Good luck and send us after pictures, too.
these windows are sealed by butle tape and a rubber seal from the factory.
the butle seals the frame, window and the rubber seal works with the frame to hold the window tight and deflect water.
if you used ge sealant or any type of silicone you will be doing the job again very soon.
the parts to do the job to spec can be purchased at Holland Marine Products
