I've removed original rub rail originally sealing C-45s deck-hull connection. Rubber wraparound seals
and waterproofs the deck-hull overlap but time and elements oxidized until rigidity now allows leaks
. Efforts to find a solution to replace same or similar material in dimensions that fit continue. If you have any ideas or links to others dealing in this vexing crises our aging Columbia
sailboat community is facing please share. Stay dry!
