re caulked 440 or 450 windows

Greetings
Im looking to purchase a 440 or 450 5 to 8 years old. Some of the ones I've looked at have had the windows re caulked or caulk over the existing caulk. Would this set off any warnings or as someone said, these boats twist and turn and this is normal. Some of these caulk jobs are terrible too. Like someone just gooped it on. Appreciate any experience.

Re: re caulked 440 or 450 windows

I have just re-caulked the port/forward salon window on our L400. It separated from the cabin.
The windows on Lagoons (and similar cats) are huge and every boat twist a litlle.

Re: re caulked 440 or 450 windows

This should not set off any warnings providing the recaulking was properly done and the window reset correctly with proper materials. Its not a difficult job to do so if it looks a mess its likely to have been a rush job. Get a bucket out and pour heaps of water over it and make some inside checks. Many Lagoons eventually need a reseal including ours - which Ive yet to do.
