Cabin window leak and seal

Post by william.ferguson » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:08 am

The base of this window has a pretty large separation that looks like it should either be sealed with a sealant or taken out with a gasket. What's the right way to remedy that?

You could recaulk but that would be a temporary fix. Removal of the window and rebedding it would, of course, be better.
Boats are to be made of wood, otherwise, God would have grown fiberglass trees.

Would butyl tape be a good option to rebed it?
