Re: Looking for the best temporary leak fix ...
My eyes wander while I'm doing other things, and I was looking at that small gap between the toerail and the deck on both sides of the toerail. I was thinking, after I redo the deck with 2 part or gelcoat, and refinishing the toerail, taping and putting in a bead of black caulk of some form to keep water from intruding on the hull/deck joint. As with any compound, you'd probably want to go OVER the toerail finish so the raw teak wouldn't suck the life out of the caulk Just ruminating. I could make it look outstanding, but not sure the efficacy. It would keep water from getting under, but you've also got the track on the rail where water could be coming in through the bolts.
