I had a little water in each hull after the most recent sail...maybe a cocktail glass full of water came out when I pulled the plugs on the ramp.
I have a little fiberglass showing on the very bottom, but they pass the leak test and are smooth to the touch. The deck/hull seal is perfect and did not bubble during leak test.
It appears the factory rubber looking seals around the pylon are starting to deteriorate, and there is old silicone sealant along the groove in the end of the pylon.
Should I remove the old rubbery seal and re-seal? What would be the best product to use?
Also, the screws that attach the rudder assembly do not have any type of silicone seal, but at one time there was a seal based on the dark paint color around the screws.
Should I unscrew everything and seal as I re-seat the screws, or should I just make sure that the screws are tight and seal over the screws?
Thanks for the help, dreaming of a water-tight boat!
