Re: Montauk 17 Waterline and Splash Well Drains

Jim, I meant cut it open and reglass it after digging out wet foam -- I've done plenty of glass work but have little interest in that project. I will leave as-is for sure.

When I replaced the transom drain I left it out and dried the area as best I could. The transom wood was dry and foa...
