Re: Cored wood bulkhead on C&C 24

I have had to reseal my windows 3 times! The last time I decide to remove the core about a 1/4 inch past the mounting points for the window and fillit with epoxy thickened with high density filler and long strand glass (for strength). This did two things...eliminated the exposed core around the edge of the window. So if it did leak again the water would not enter the core. Also it created a much stronger base for the mounting of the window so hopefully it wont leak again.
