Re: Fixing hull and deck leaks

Thanks everyone,

Photo doesn't show much - just a crack with old sealant flaking out of it.
If you look at Bill's diagram the water is coming in between the deck flange and the hull.

I'll try caulking with sealant now, and then I'll consider pulling off the cap-rails, re-sealing all the fasteners and fittings and glassing over permanently in Thailand or Malaysia where getting work done is affordable.

Thanks for the advice not to epoxy fill it.

Cheers,
John
