Re-sealing bottom seams
I have an old century boat, has not been in water for 20 years, the bottom wood seems good, have poked around.
Ran the hose inside, it leaks terribly.
All the seams are letting water out.
Let it sit for a couple of days, and same thing again.
I have hoisted it up in a sling, and set it on blocks to access the bottom.
Have started to dig out the old caulking, which is hard as a rock.
I think I must remove the old caulking, before putting something new in.
What product would be best to use.
Thanks for any help,
Claude in Toronto

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.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
