Any caulk is better than NO caulk

As i keep fixing stuff on my current 28 year old J24 i keep thanking the PO for being a caulking freak

He may have been a messy caulking freak who did not always use the right caulk BUT every piece of hardware i dread pulling off because its going to open a Pandora's box of wet core is sealed with something and the balsa looks brand new


I am sure i will run into something over the next few years but so far so good

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
