The above posting is correct , but the problem is most owners will not do maint till forced to.

Sealant has a limited life , but few owners will rip out the windows to reseal them if there NOT leaking.

Sadly human nature is the demise of the "Chinese Composite" of many TT, a thin layer of glass poly stuck on a sheet of house ply.

When the sealants go , the repair is frequently beyond the value of the vessel.

So the owners goop till some leaks stop , and continue to enjoy cottaging aboard.

This actually works just fine for decades , just never take one of these boats into an offshore situation. One comber landing on board may remove too much boat.
