Frank and Melanie Scalfano

Bud,

The previous owner of my boat ran a rubber propane line through the foredeck and caulked the hole with some sort of caulk (probably boat life), building up the hole with a sort of a teak gasket around the hose, screwed down to the existing teak decking. This arrangement has not turned out satisfactorily, as I have discovered that it has been leaking and rotted out the plywood paneling in the V berth. Do you have any suggestions as far as how to properly do this? I have been thinking some sort of a pvc bulkhead fitting, after completely sealing the hole in the deck with epoxy and re-boring it with a spade bit, and seating the bulkhead fitting in the black deck caulk or polysulfide. What do you think?

Frank

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
