Re: Leak near main cabin port lights on E32

awahl - thanks for the sketch, that gives me a better idea of how to attack. After recaulking with 3m4000 the leaky area seems dryer but I need to really dry it our with a fan for a day to be sure. I like the dry erase marker idea from Sammyo, I'll try that next time I'm at the boat.

Well after a couple of months it looks like recaulking the toe rail did the trip. no dampness coming in from what I can see & feel.

glad to hear it-

we still have a couple of leaks we're trying to track down but nothing major. i do some surgical strikes with butyl tape every so often- planning on doing every screw in the toe-rail eventually...

I used 3m 4000 as 5200 is a bear to get off if you need to re do it. Caulking the toe rail solved my issue, leak stopped at least for now. make sure you clean it out well - took me over a day for the whole boat and then I wiped down what I could with IPA to help with the adhesion.
