Thanks everyone so much for the thoughtful and helpful replies.

Yes, these are all wood framed windows. I would love to sand the frames, clean out old caulk and gunk and do the resealing from the outside.

All wood seems good with no rot found.

Here are some photos as requested.Click image for larger version

Greetings,
Mr. frg. Ahhh....A picture is worth 1000 words. In your case, you may be able to get away with exactly what you describe (scrape, clean up and re-caulk). Ultimately not the best fix, the best fix being total disassembly and re-build or full replacement, but should be easily doable and much less labor/skill intensive and cheaper. That being said, a "quick and dirty" will not last as long as the best fix.

Hi, I just joined this site. I've got the bug and am looking into purchasing a trawler sometime in the future. I've just read all 32 pages and this was an awesome story! Does anyone know why it ended with the post on the window?
Thanks,
Steve

No idea either. Last I heard, Fr. George was having an unspecified health issue. I've emailed and PMed him, but got no reply.

Boy...oh boy... I too wish I could find George.

He and Betty Jo are a fun pair. George called me about the time he found a boat and we discussed what to look for in it; as well as to how to best work the negotiations.

They sure were happy after the purchase and some boat use!

Hope he'll sign back in and post again...

This makes me sad after reading how happy and excited he was about this venture.

Unhappy

Sad to see the boat for sale. I, like many here - enjoyed reading this story as it developed, and chuckled at many of the experiences and "episodes" that we all could relate to. I've often wished that he would be able to update us. It was like a book - that was missing the last chapter.

I hope that whatever happened, they are doing well.

I called Barry who is the listed boat broker. He said that George and wife are fine. I asked if they were to purchase another boat and he replied yes; they are moving up in size. Seems all is OK. However I'm surprised we do not hear from George. Will say that Barry was not too talkative soon as told him I was not a buyer.

Thank you for the update. I found this ad this morning and it says selling for health reasons? Strange he just quit posting in mid-stream? Anyway, I hope he and his wife are ok and still living their dream. I did enjoy reading about his journey!

YW

However... boat broker must be careful what is said on a cold call such as I did. As I recall George's problem was his back. Hope that and anything other is in manageable condition.

Taking the Plunge

The broker could have been honest and said he was getting out of boating rather than making up a story about moving up to a bigger boat.

I take a person's statement pretty much as is... unless things are proven otherwise. Especially in something this trivial to all concerned.

I hope George and Betty Jo are moving up in size!
