We have removed the hardware from the toe rail on our '38 in preparation for refinishing/varnishing. As I cleaned up last weekend, I noticed a lot of gunk - perhaps old sealant - washing out from under the toe rail. While I am planning to bed the hardware in sealant on re-installation, I had not thought to prevent water from entering under the toe rail... with sealant, for example.
I haven't found a discussion of this particular issue in the master index teak section or by searching the forum. Is this a problem/concern? I would think so... How is this best addressed (without removing the teak)?
