cabin windows leaky

Postby Maestro » Tue Jun 07, 2016 1:34 pm

Our sliding cabin windows drip and leak quite a bit when it rains or when there's a lot of spray from the waves. Anyone have solutions for this? Original plastic window tracks are in decent shape but I think the polyglide strips were removed at some point.

Do they drain adequately? Check for debris and if water is trapped in the outer groove, cut off a little piece of the portion that will promote better drainage to the outside.

Right on Joel! That's the fix.
