One of this winters projects is to reseal and polish my portlights
dont leak as far as I can tell and they have an aluminum
frames both inside and out. I am hesitant to take them out as I have heard that it can be a B!#¤ to get it back together.
I think thier original and the boat (Cascade 27) is 28 years old. The reason I'm looking to reseal them is the previous owner has used silicon on the outside. He seemed to have done a nice looking job but the silicon has now pulled away in strings.
I don't want to use silicon, as many of you have stated, "that it has no place on a boat", and I don't think you should use (polysulfide??) on plastics.
Question is there a product that I can use to caulk?
Do I have to take out the portlights and risk bending frames that I would never get back together?
The plastic is quite grazed.
