Re-sealing deck hardware
I had two pieces of deck hardware (lifeline stanchion & connector for a shroud) that were allowing water to leak into the cabin. I fixed both by removing them, and remounting with new marine sealant.
Now I'm wondering if I should take the time to re-seal all of the deck hardware, or wait for leaks. My boat is 1972 Helms 25, so I'm sure more leaks are just a matter of time. On the other hand, my lazy side says to just move on to the next project (like giving the hull a fresh coat of polyeurythene). Should I re-seal all the deck hardware while I'm in the groove or "if they aren't leaking, don't worry about it!"?
All opinions are valued. Thanks!
