View Full Version : Leaks through the hull to deck connection

I have a 79 stars and stripes and I was wondering if there is a way to seal the hull to deck connection. Any tips would be great. Thanks

Check out my on-going thread for pics on how these were built- I found up to about 1/4 gap in some places when I removed the top. Mine was sealed (and resealed) with tons of gnarly marine sealant. I would reccomend removing all of the sealant you can and then re-appling with new. Just go slow and smooth it as you go.

My 84 had silcone on the under side of the rub rail. I replaced it when I replaced the rail. TB
