I second the wax ring idea. I think it is like the stuff in a jar they had in the video, just a lot cheaper. We have had one on board for many years and never used it - hope that continues. I think also that for leaks it does not have to be one method or another - you can combine a wooden plug with some of the wax for example with an irregularly shaped hole.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
