    window leaks

    I own a 1984 38 foot coastal barracuda widebody. My back windows leak really bad. Have caulked all windows and the back 2 still leak really bad. Any help.? Have been all over the Web trying to fine parts but can't find anything.

    Thanks

    did you pull them out and clean them and then caulk behind them?

    5200?

    That should keep them dry.

    Yes they are leaking in the tracks. There use to be a plastic track the window slid on but the sun has caused them to break. When it rains the water pours in the bottom track and flows inside instead of out of the drains on the outside of the bottom of the window.

    It sounds like a new window is in your future. www.boatwindows.com is 1 site. you definitely want to take care of it before the back wall rots then you have big problems.

    Yep, time for new windows.
    It sounds like the 33 year old window has expired.
