    242/2452 Front Cabin Window Lead-gctid380622

    Hey guys, need a bit of advice regarding caulking front cabin window(s) on 242. Last nigh I was washing my boat, and later noticed a wet spot on the V-berth mattress beneath the window frame. Clearly the black caulk around the window is leaking somewhere so I need to re-caulk it.

    Questions;

    1) What type of caulk is used there? The factory caulk is black hard type.

    2) What is the best way to re-caulk these windows so I don't make a bloody mess?

    Edit: title should say LEAK not lead.

    Most of the 242/2452 owners have found the water leak is from the cabin rails not being sealed correctly and a huge percentage of those that sealed those handrails have stopped the "front window" staining issues. They have been successful using Capt Tolley's Crack cure squirted around the base of each hand rail...

      Go to an aut parts store and buy auto windo installation sealent, black, that is what a marine window repair guy told me some years ago. Peal the lip back slightly and a small bead.
