Caulking Bow pulpit??
I have a 1981 Hunter 27' and the bow pulpit is cracked and worn through. I was thinking of just removing it, checking the structural integrety of the boat underneth it and filling in the cracks and holes with LifeCaulk and putting it back on. Is this foolish to do? How much support does the bow pulpit really give the headstay, lifelines etc...
And here is a basic question...pardon my newbieness...If I undo the headstay from the bow pulpit, is the mast going to have enough support to stay firmly in place for a couple of weeks?
Some friendly advice would be appreciated.
