    3270 rub rail leaking.-gctid811934

    I finally have dry bilges. After three seasons of water finding it's way in mainly the forward bilge and reading the likely cause is the rub rail, I re-caulked the top of the rail and it appears to have solved the problem. Hard to believe that much water was finding it's way through there.

    I cut the old caulking off which shrunk and separated, cleaned with alcohol or acetone and used 3m clear marine silicone. Pushing the caulking gun, not pulling, gave a nice clean finish. Big shout out to JohnnyVintage for that tip as I been doing wrong all these years.

    Glad to hear you got it taken care of!

    Silicone should be ok for 2-3 season...

    Silicone is a magnet for dirt algae, it will hold dirt.

      We'll see how it lasts but no doubt it will require re-sealing at some point.
