What do you recommend to keep water out of the seat well where you would attach the emergency tiller. Seems like previous owner had some kind of caulking ( now gone bad) but I would think that you would want to be able to easily access that area if and when needed so I am not sure about caulk and , if caulk, what kind.
Also looking to replace 155 furling genoa and main( racer/cruiser) on inland lake. Any suggestions as to sail makers recommended , best type of main for this boat (currently have a full batten) and costs to expect.
Also need to replace the deck, mast seal. Any suggestions. A lot of stuff to fix , replace on any boat, especially a neglected one.
