Acres of leaking acrylic
windows --which did not open anyway--rotted their surrounding plywood
on our cruiser to the point we decided to get rid of them and the entire cabin
It was a major undertaking. Sheets
of new plywood
, and then the installation
of caravan-style sliding toughened glass windows in aluminium frames. But one of the 4 constantly leaked, despite the very neat installation
with screws and sikaflex sealing.
I suspect a problem in the frame itself..but rather than remove and re-install, we poured a liquid product, Captain
Tolley's creeping crack cure all over the outside frame and into the slide channels.
We were on board for a couple of rainy days after that, before returning home, and the leaks
appeared to have stopped.
