Re: Leaking portlights

I've used plastic sheeting and frogger tape. Goo-gone will get rid of any sort of residue left.

If your planning on keeping it on all winter, I'd recommend plastic sheeting with gorilla tape. This will hold all winter and will keep your windows leak proof for sure. I've also use gorilla tape in a ship-lap method to secure my windows and have had great success with that.

Just save your self the hassle and effort, tape the buggers up until winter is over and do it once and be done

Congrats on the boat! I have one too!
Seems like the perfect boat to me.
I'd just throw a tarp over her til spring, bungee the corners and sides. Why not?
I just joined and just found this Catalina area as well and am sooooo happy now!
I like smaller boats in general and especially ones who can live in my front yard on a trailer! Lol.
Good luck with the port leaks. Luckily mine don't but the small embedded "light" in the v-berth does! Bucket til i replace it!
