37 Egg

by John

I have a 1969 Egg Harbor 37 foot.

She sank about 2years ago.

She was only down for 2 days before I pulled her out of the water.

Since then she has been sitting on dry land.

As you can guess the seams have opened up.

I intend to refasten the bottom, but should I caulk the seams first,or refasten first?

Re-caulking an Egg Harbor 37
by: Mike

Hi John,

Refasten first!

Yea you need to get those planks stabilized and any repairs done before you begin caulking.

However, as you intend re-caulking it might be a good idea to start by raking out the old caulking before you do anything else.

When you do begin caulking just remember that those planks will have dried out and shrunk so don’t be tempted to over-caulk.

Let us know how you get on,

Best of luck with her,

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.
