    cabin window leak help - 242-gctid802165

    I have a bayliner 244 with a leak in the front cabin windows, they set in and have no frames, I wonder if anyone has had to deal with trying to reseal these without removing and having to re-bed them?

    Pictures would help too.

    Thanks

    I had the same problem when I bought mine. I found threads on here about this. What I did was take a razor knife and remove the old silicone as best you can. Clean with alcohol. Then I mask the windows glass and around the trough you created. I filled the gap with flexible silicone, 3M 3200 Black I think. Smooth it out as you go as it sets up pretty quick. When tacked up pretty good remove the masking tape. It's been 2 years and no leaks ! There may be better ways , but that is what I did. Good luck
    I knew I was in trouble when those ducks stood up ! Ice ahead !

      Here is how to fix it correctly and pretty much forever but you need to remove the window. I have done one of mine so far and 5 more to go!

      Once you have all the old silicon removed outside you have the hard part done actually. Inside all you need to do it run a long style utility knife around it a few times and it will then pop right out.

        That was the approach I had in mind, see no reason to go to all the work of removing and rebedding. Glad to hear it was successful for you, I will get to it this weekend.

        Thanks
