OK progress report. Cleaned and then resealed the two hoses in the lazarette. Its not going to leak there now. Everything dry down below after some rain last night, happy about that. We'll see as winter rains come later how it all is though! Hoping we have the rear quarter berth issues resolved now. Repainting the wall with a u-channel plastic moulding piece on the bottom to prevent water if any does come back from soaking in to the plywood. Will reinstall tomorrow. Its in two pieces now, so I can remove half and easily access the aft area and the fuel tank without having to remove anything from the wall forward of the fuel tank. Re installed one port this morning, then decided to have at the large fixed window on the port side. Anyway that's off topic and another thread.
