We have never had any hull to deck leaks nor any reason to consider re-sealing that joint. I would like to help you. How did you come to the conclusion that your hull to deck joint was leaking?

How nice to hear from you
I have been trying to reach you for a long time thru Gene Ulmer of Bayou Fl
And thru Facebook and various social media, no luck
And here you are?.... Just out of no where.
It may well be the stanchions, I have to look closely, I may be too hasty.....
My roll of paper towel that was stowed on a wall compartment beneath the dinette got mildew
So I thought perhaps I have a leak. I could be wrong.......
I also wanted a picture of your aft arch since I want to custom build one just like it for solar
and wind generator
I saw a pix of your boat of google
I am also curious to see the type of modifications you did in the main saloon
Today I was trying to improve my deep bilge pump
. It was kind of a Mickey Mouse
. I need a secondary more powerful one but none of the over 1500 GPH
Would fit in the deep bilge
cuz the prop shaft is in the way
Thanks for your response
