Re: Toe Rails Leak, How to seal leaks.

"You'd almost have open something up and get into it deeper to verify the construction detail."

This disheartening process will be essential, if you are to find the sources of all the leaks, and make the boat sound. Can be a huge project.

Good luck with it. You're gonna need it!

Sorry for sounding down, but to make the boat safe for long distance voyaging is going to be a real challenge.

Like I just said, good luck.

Don't resin teak.. it don't work for long before it yellows, bubbles and lifts. Lift it and re-bed it
