    This is crappy, was looking forward to getting out there after Great Lakes tour and possibly hooking up on the North side of the Island before going to Rivers Inlet. I guess there is nothing to do but wait and see what happens.

    Yea, I kind of thought that too. Seems setting something 6 months out is overkill. Still my June departure sure is not looking real good.

    Yeah, that’s probably going too far out to be accurate. Any other COVID response issue is pretty much to the next month or two. An official declaration about something that important to their marina economy made now effective through October is highly unlikely, me thinks....

    Wow... that’s pretty stringent for how far out that is

    Just got a text from a friend jn Sooke, BC. It was reported on CTV News that ferry service is Ļessential serviceĻ only until June 30. All cruise ships and personal watercraft can not enter Canada until October 30th. Sure hope this is not true.

    Use a narrow QUALITY tape on corners first then stagger with wider. I really like FROG tape.

    I bought my butyl sealant tape from Amazon as well. Between my windows and Diversifiedīs that I picked up in Vancouver I had enough of the stationary window rubbers to reuse them. You will need a good pop rivet gun and pop rivets to reassemble everything. Will get you pics of everything soon.

    It is a lot of work to clean all the old glue from the original felt channels that were used and requires some wire wheels I used in my various air tools. The saving grace is the money you save. Diversified had tinted glass and I reused his to save the $450 costs of having mine tinted. All together I have about $300 invested to rebuild the windows.
    That's a bummer yours were glued in! Mine were surprisingly easy to remove and only needed a quick wipe down of the frame. I replaced my felts already, I was just hoping you found the glass bedding seals. Mine have gotten too much sun, and if I refurb frames I'd like to replace all the rubber with new. Could probably cut it back and use Cummins12V98 method to seal the outside, but taping all the curves and keeping it clean would be pretty tough.

    I trimmed off the shot black weatherstripping in the inside and then masked off to create a 1/4" beveled area for the caulk to be tooled. Pumped the area full then tooled off with finger and immediately removed the tape. Looks VERY professional. I have taken several waves over the bow along with washing the boat with ZERO water intrusion.

    The caulking is VERY high quality with excellent adhesion and tooling.



    Appreciate the input but all 28 GP cabin windows are sealed from the outside underneath the window outside flanges to avoid water getting to cabin wood in the walls.

    Also, did you buy new materials for rebuilding your windows? If so, where did you buy from and what part number gasket for bedding glass to the frame? and any other parts you found for this!

    I started on my projects first week of January, R&R cabin windows. Was planning on buying new but after I went to Vancouver, WA to look at fellow forum member Diversifiedīs boat with new windows I decided to take his old windows and between mine and his rebuilt a set for my cabin. Finished installing all new felt on cabin walls and remodeled bathroom as well with new SS sink, new formica countertop, felt on walls and all trim. My plan is to splash it May 1st if boat yard is open then. Planning on being ready to cross the border in June if it opens.
