Leaky windows.

I have leaky windows on board of a 50 fishing which was built in 2016. They have been pulled and re bedded with 5200 a couple of times before I got her under me and they still leak like a sieve.

Are there options available to bed the window frames more securely? Different products?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Leaky windows.

For curing sealants to work when having different thermal expansions, the sealant in the joint needs some thickness. On a perspex to GFK overlapping through bolted joint, I have used around 2 ... 3 mm on a 22 ft boat. Still ok 4 years later - in moderate German climate.

Could you provide photos of the joint?
