    hull deck joint resealing

    No kidding. I even get the feeling but really, really annoying on the boat since it does leave me with needing to fix it all... Especially since when the yard did it we asked for it to be done properly but ended up with this. Took the price drop back then...

    hull deck joint resealing

    Well, that looks worse than I thought on the picture. Was one of the areas I opened up to take a closer look. Boat will be out of the water in a week and in a hangar where I'll remove everything fully and set things to dry for some time... Misremembered how it was in part... As is the "joint"...

    hull deck joint resealing

    Poor phrasing on my part. The proper joint of deck and hull is glassed solidly. No issues or need to do anything there. It is however a polyester boat and there is a small gap between deck and hull paint that leaves laminate susceptible to water and eventual osmosis. That is all the bead is...

    hull deck joint resealing

    I'll provide those. Boat will be lifted end of october and removing old sealant as well as dropping the rudder will be the first tasks. Until then I already have a roadmap on what to order.

    hull deck joint resealing

    How would I do that without removing everything? For reference, I do keep an eye on moisture as well as stains or the like to find any potential leaks (also no sandwhich core on the boat, just full laminate). And it is all bone dry since I redid the V-berth hatch.

    hull deck joint resealing

    Pretty unanimous for simply using sika295uv then. Kind of hoped for a different outcome, but advice has not steered me wrong here yet! Besides that was probably what they used the first time around and it was my mistake to take off the shelf  sika that led to early degradation. Going to post...

    hull deck joint resealing

    This winter I want to fix an issue with my H-boat I always postponed or temporarily adressed ever since it came out the yard with a new paint job. This time for good. Yard painted both hull and topsides seperately and then sealed the small gap where coaming meets the hull with some 3M. Which...
