The sealant around the joint where deck mates with hull is now perishing and falling out fast! Accelerated by Caribbean temps and torrential rain fall!

The deck to hull seal is obviously good so im assuming the sealant is purely cosmetic. Has anyone replaced it?

If so, what with?

Many thanks.

Grey Goose,

Yes the Sika is just for looks. Ours was replaced under warranty and took about 8 hours to remove the old, clean , mask and reapply Sika 295UV.

Depending on the age of your boat, I would see if the dealer would do the work under warranty.  Although I have never seen it "admitted" by Hanse, I understand that they either had a bad batch of Sika or used the wrong kind.  My boat was re-done under warranty when the sealant failed to set (it was remained soft to the touch and collected dirt and mold). It was quite a bit of work to dig it out, mask, and reapply.  That said, as Wayne stated, it is only cosmetic.

all sealant will degrade and as already stated its only cosmetic. Remove the old stuff and clean the area up of all old sealant and leave it, no more worries.

Thanks. Ill clean it up, not much to do as its just falling off. Then leave it for a while and see how it goes. Were in the Caribbean mainly at anchor so not to easy to get a batch of sealant and apply it neatly.

if you have teak or synthetic teak, the white can be trimmed out with black sealant, looks sharp and no more cosmetic issues.  does not help the deck to hull joint as that needs to stay white but other areas will start to show mildew as well
