That would be best, but after 40 yrs of immersion it would be a tall order. As I understand it the problem is different materials (metal, foam, glass) all subjected to expansion and contraction, wear and vibration. In the end seams fail and it leaks. Some boats have CF rudders and stocks, all one unit, that could be made leak proof but are very $.
