Well, no pics tonight, but progress is being made. After pulling the metal part of the rub rail, thru deck/hull screws on the starboard side were exposed. There were short, small rivets through the hull only (these were cut off on the inside) that held the interior wood to the inside of the hull. The screws ran through the deck and hull, into the wood and then, large rivets went through the metal rubrail and into the wood to hold the rubrail in place. It took all day, but I got the new wood installed and new screws installed through the deck/hull joint. The metal rubrail still needs to be installed, when my helper is available. The port side should have been a mirrir image and therefore somewhat easier, bu no, it was another story. It appears holes and countersink recesses were drilled for screws, as on the starboard side, but in actuality, rivets were used to connect the hull and deck. There were no screws on the port side in the area of the V berth, but further back along the hull deck joint were a combination of screws and rivets. The same large rivets held the metal rubrail in place. So, on the port side, I added screws installed as on the starboard side. Talc has been liberally applied to the inside at the joint and along the shelf. we have had some rain and so far, no leaks. More rain is due and I need to detail the deck and hull, so I'll delay reinstalling the rubrail as long as possible to be sure the leaks are fixed. By the way, a section of the vinyl rubrail insert is cracked and beyond repair (it's always something). Does anyone know where a replacement can be had?
