Well I finished the bottom job on the 21SE. So much easier than I expected once we had sun after 6 weeks!!!
When we were flipping the boat, one of the missing end caps to the wing support fell out of the wing support hole. It had serious glue (5200?) on the inside to supposedly seal cap. After looking at all the wing end caps, all of them were missing the rivets, but were still held in place with this glue. One even had water and sand from long ago (smelled terrible) still in the wing tube.
I will be replacing the rivets, but I am not sure that I am going to seal the end caps for the following reasons.
If they are not sealed at the bottom the water will drain until the water will be only as high as the wing socket.
Water that does enter into the wing from somwhere in the top will not drain out, holding more water than is described above.
If water does get in, how do you ever drain it?
Please let me know your thoughts on sealing these wing tubes at the end cap or not! I am just not seeing the pro's outweighing the cons.
