Update on the sealing experiment.

Saturday, I drill 4 3/8 holes just outboard of the Genoa track and centered around the leak and low area of the cap rail.

Using liquid Life Caulk (heated in hot water) I was able to force the Caulk into one hole and have the caulk come out the second hole. Both of these holes had about a 1/4" gap between the bottom of the teak and the top of the deck/hull joint material.

The outer holes didn't seem to accept much caulk except to fill up the hole. Neither did there seem to be a gap between the teak and deck/hull material.

I am letting the caulk harden up before removing enough to teak plug/patch the holes.

I'll advise as to the results.

Jay

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!

See the full list here!
