Even one drop is too much...Then ya repair the damage the leaks have been doing over the years...After ya fix the leaks...

Had leaks on my boat too, and I take it personally...Not even one drop is acceptable..Stop every drop...

CSY Man - I agree completely. I have already re bedded all of the deck hardware, portlights, mast step, hand rails, hatch sliders, winches and everything I could find. So far I have found one bolt on the turning blocks with one drip with all of the rain that we have had. I do still have a small leak in heavy rain at the bottom of the hatch washboards that I need to dry out and seal better. I have a temp fix on it right now.

Why replace it with a similar one. Why not construct a glass replacement.

Why in heck did they use what looks like cold rolled steel? I know..cost. Amazing how some manufacturers cut corners.

David M - that is what I have been asking myself a lot also. I assume that you are right - cost.
