Need some advice. Have a 1987 30' Sea Ray weekender that has a sliding glass window portside. With all of the rain it began to leak. Removed the caulk around the frame and recaulked but water still entering the cabin. Seems to go between the hull and inner lining and ends up on the cabil floor. Any help will be appreciated.

One other thing to check is the hand rails mounting screws. I had to pull them all out of my old boat and rebed them in new adheasive sealer. I used 3M 5200 I think. There were 3 screws per post. I had to remove all the screws from one side of it, clean the area of the old stuff, then re-install each post, one at a time and make sure that there was adhesive on each screw. If it is for sure it is in your window, you may have to remove it completely. Clean any old sealant off. Then reinstall it.

Good luck

I recall reading somewhere that the best fix is to just remove the window and replace with a solid piece of lexan or something of sort. They said that the basic design of these windows is bad. Any weight on the top of the deck causes the window opening to flex and break all the seals around the window thus causing it to leak. Notice that on the newer sea rays they use smaller, separate oval windows. The website I read this from, yachtsurvey.com, was not really fond of sea ray products. It is a good read and heads up for any sea ray owner. Take what ya read how ya want to. I didn't know about the stringer and balsa core bottom issues with sea rays after us having em for years until I read about it on that sight. Never had any major problems with our boats but maybe thats because we never kept em long enough?
