resealing "Old style" Lewmar Portlights
I noticed water pooling beneath one of my portlights the other day so I tested the seal with a water hose and it looks to me like that the water is getting past the frame bedding.
My plan is to remove the screws and separate the inner and outer frame sections, then use a thin putty knife to gently separate the outer frame from the hull, clean off the old bedding from the affected parts and re bed with 4800 and re-assemble.
Any tricks or tips before I start from Sailnetters that have done this job?
Thanks in advance , James
