Caulks & Other Issues

Bob Adriance, editor of the BoatU.S. Seaworthy newsletter, wrote an interesting report on marine caulk.

Q: Which Type of Marine Caulk Works Best?
A: It Depends. Read on.

Goto: - Seaworthy Magazine


A recent discussion on the BoatU.S. message board ( focused on five specific areas that cause owners the most consternation: leaks and drainage problems, limited access to engines and other mechanical systems, poor quality or inadequate fittings and finish, non-ergonomic designs and the conflict between seaworthiness and style.

For expert reactions to these comments, BoatU.S. asked naval architect and marine surveyor Jack Hornor of Annapolis, MD, Mike McGlenn, a marine surveyor in Bellingham, WA, who formerly worked for Uniflite, and Pat Kearns of Naples, FL, a surveyor and former assistant technical director of the American Boat & Yacht Council, for their thoughts.
