Looking for advise... Two years ago Margo and I purchased Falcon our Alberg 37 MkI. At the time she had been given a caulk job at the toe rail between the deck and rail and between the hull and rail. This last fall we started a total refit of her deck and have removed all signs of everythig on deck encluding the caulk between the rail and deck. The time is fast aproaching when the new Awlgrip paint will be dry and we will have to address the issue of this connection and I am having trouble deciding what to do. I am toying with several ideas and am only sure that lifting and rebedding is the sure fix. I am also thinking that if I tighten the bolts a few turns at the under side... that might get the job done as well. And as a last resort, I can recaulk as before. Does anyone have experience with this connection and can offer a little advise. Kindest Regards- Greg
