Generally turns it yellow and starts to cause it to break down. If it is tinted black, it might not need as much protection, but to be safe, I'd varnish it at a minimum.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the replies. Some of the caulk is missing and the wood is pretty rough. So it looks like I will be removing the caulk. I did not know that you could sand the caulk. I figured it was like rubber? But that would explain how it is perfectly even with the wood unlike the caulk in my shower. Also did not know about taping the bottom so it won't stick to the fiber glass.
So let me make sure I have this right.
1. Stop and buy some rum and cokes
2. remove caulk
3. tape bottom of joint and around the edges
4. caulk
5. get more rum
6. sand wood and caulk until smooth
7. remove tape
8. enjoy
Thanks again,
Randy
