expecting heavy rain.

next on the to-do list, is the floors in the 2 hulls galley and nav areas,which I couldn't do till these windows had been properly sealed.

will post some exterior photos once the outer sikaflex seal is done,hopefully before the seagulls crap on it
LOL.. I have this vision of you sailing across the Atlantic with plastic sheets over the windows...

It will be fine. Once sealed and bolted, it aint going anywhere.

Re: Modernizing a Prout Elite 37ft

Your windows will be fine. There can be no other solutions. Trimming = more issues. More bolts = more holes. Make some tea;

hav a banana!
read a book.

Behind the times, SM, Brian and Sandra been pensioned off - it's Sasha, Danny and Steve, these days (we still getting the last of them DownUnder, though sadly NT has been canned by the networks. Idiots.)

Never did like Sandra (Aamda Redman), bit too hammy. Tamzin OUthwaite has long ago got over her blond bombshell tag and is a serious actor.

Oh, alright, she's still cute.....

I'm sentimental for the old lot. It became too packaged in these later episodes, almost into a nauseating CSI Hollywood format. Still one of the greatest shows ever.

@Atoll, I was wondering what that large spool of rope was, and how the hell you got it into the hull.
