Window Make-over

Since our weather has been uncooperative, we decided to work on things that can be completed while nice and dry in the house.

The windows and screens of the 79' had seen better days.

Super nice work. And my wife Kay just pointed out this past wknd a small hole in the screen door of Eloise. Looks like I'll be right behind you on this one. I hope mine turns out as nice as yours.

Just took our '76 31' LY on her maiden voyage. Found that the window leak. Any good sealant for aluminum to glass till I find gaskets for the upper "skylights".

Any good polyurethane like trempro should work fine.
