Re: Helms25 Window Gaskets

Wayne,

Thanks for the tips and the pointer to the website. Also the tip about DeBond. I wasn't aware of a remedy for 3m 5200.

I may end up doing the same thing as you with the portlights. I haven't unscrewed the frame yet to look at what is inside.

A renovation book I bought (Fix it and Sail it) talks about screwing plexiglass to the fiberglass on the outside in a bed of silicon, but I imagine that would leave me with fiberglass work on the inside where I had removed the frames.

I want to try to understand my options and then figure out what will look the best with a minimal amount of trouble.


Thanks again!
