Caulking deck seams
I am restoring a Chris Craft runabout and the caulking on the deck seams needs to be replaced.
Any suggestions/techniques will be appreciated.
1. Preping seams.
2. What type of caulk to use.? (someone suggested 5200???)
3. Staining/varnishing (when to lay the caulk)
4. Do I have to varnish over the caulk?
I don't like the "use pigmented epoxy" suggestion posted earlier.
It's quite obvious that deck planks move and over time fracturing will occur.
If the deck is varnished, then the caulk applied, will it hold up?
