Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Side Windows loose screws
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hello James, Herbert and JP,
the vertical sides of the roof, where the side windows and their S/S frames are installed are NOT balsa cored. This is just plain GRP.
On SMs and SAs, the S/S frame-GRP-plexiglas window-wooden frame are attached to gether with screws and bolts (one screw- one bolt).
Once the screws/bolts heads move, the silicone seal is broken and there may be water ingress. It's time to remove all screws-bolts and put new silicone filler. But the window will stay in place.
The nuts for the bolts are accessible under the wooden trim ( above and below window ) that is nailed into the wooden frame.
If the window itself is leaking (broken), then it's a much bigger job...

Can anyone tell me if the cabin sides on the latter (my hull # is 220) Maramus are balsa cored in the area of the windows?
