Window coverings

Postby Grafunkus » May 21st, 2018, 6:58 pm

Well, our boat went in this week!!! Yeah!!! engines didn't start, boo!!!! I was, however able to cut, stitch and finish the exterior window coverings for Grafunkus. This is intended as a "temporary" fix to help keep the rain out. We have noticed in the couple of years that we have owned the boat that during a heavy rain it rains inside generally at one point from the window. These coverings will hopefully slow any rain penetration and keep us dry on the inside!!

Those old windows need to be removed and resealed every 10 or 15 years. They are most likely leaking around the frames, so your covers will only slow it down. For a seasonal fix, scrape the old 5200 from around the frames and use some good silicone. It should get you through the season until you can remove the windows and properly reseal them.
