I recently found some water
marks in the cabin
above the windows. There
was a bolt I had failed to tighten all the way when I removed the teak
refinish . It was raining today in RI, and after work
I stopped by the boat
(on the hard) to see if the leak was active. Ugh, I could see the water
The leak will be easily fixed, by tightening bolt and recaulking at deck
how about the water that has gotten into the balsa deck
in between deck glass and cabin
wall? Is there any way to attempt to dry out this hole?
I'm tempted to leave the bolt out, seal the hole at the top, so that the hole and any wet balsa might dry out. Maybe with very careful application of warm dry air from a hair dryer? I'm worried about tightening the bolt and sealing moisture in there.
