Resealing Window Hatch and Windscreen
Hi got my new boat and a new problem, I appear to have a leak!
When it rains it gets a bit wet inside the problem is either with the hatch on the deck / roof of the cuddy or the seal round the windscreen, I have yet to discover which one. Either way I need to reseal the windscreen and / or the hatch.
Would you use silicone sealant for this or stikoflex or something else I have read some where on the net that if you use silicone or it has been used prior that it wont stick unless you clean the surfaces with some other type of cleaner first Not sure what this is?
Anyone any experience of this? In terms of what material to use for the resealing of the joins?
Thanks as always
