Islander 30 toe rail leak...

Hi all, I am a new owner of a 1974 Islander 30 MK II. This particular boat has a teak toe rail the length of each side. It appears to leak in a couple of spots. Is there any easy way of stopping those leaks short of taking them off and re-bedding them??

You may try to locate the places where water gets in from the inside and apply some 5200, but it is best to rebed them.

Thanks for the info. I was pretty sure that the only way to seal it correctly was to take them up and rebed,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Happy Sails,
