Hi everyone

I am new to the forum and new to Thompson boats, just purchased a daytona 310 and was wondering if anyone can tell me if I need to caulk between the molded swim platform and the hull ( side ) as the caulking would take away fro mthe appearance but I am worried about water getting in.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

can you provide a picture of the area you are referring to?

if it's like mine...i don't think it's a crucial spot. it simply ends up in the bilge area. however....i knew a guy that had a 34 that sunk in the slip because the swim platform somehow got hung up under the dock on a rising tide, then took on water through that seam. (maybe bilge pump was not working properly??)

 

welcome to the forum by the way!

Hi waterlogged

Thanks for the response, the area is if you are standing beside the boat on the dock and look straight where the swim platform molds up to the side of the boat - right after the lettering Thompson you can see the joint-there is caulking there now but really messy looking and i am thinking take it off and leave the small space open as it would be cleaner looking,, i have attached a photo  to give you an idea.

This is the link for the photo http://canada.motoseller.com/c/sys.php?a=15&b=60954

thanks for your help

i don't think that is a factory platform.....without knowing how it is installed i can't give you much advice about it.

check out the inside behind the engines on the transom. see if you see some "bolts/nuts" that seam to be after-thoughts.....i would assume that it is simply thru-bolted on???

maybe get some close-up pics??...

Thanks,, I looked inside the transom, don't see any bolts through it. Apparently the swim platform is factory installed on these models. I attached a closer picture so maybe you could see better-- you can see the line of white silicone going down the side.

I can't get a closer picture than this yet,, I just purchased the boat and it it is only being delivered to me this weekend.

Thanks for your help and interest in my little problem here.  By the way, have you got any pictures of your boat up yet ??

Platform is factory. It's an add on to the 300 to call it a 310 (Literally, it's the only difference between the 2 boats). More than likely lag bolted to the transom on the bottom, bolted up top. As far as the silicone goes I doubt it's water tight any more so strip it out and see how it looks, If you re-seal use a marine grade clear (marine won't yellow like home grade silicone) Good luck!

Thanks Moosin` Around,, I did just that and it looks clean, she will stay like that now.

Your boat is really something, great job with the renovations. I just started my renovations and hope it looks as good as your does.

What did you use on the teak, is it Ceratol or Teak oil. I was thinking of stripping it right down and using a teak colored wood stain, more uniform and it will blend nicely with the interior teak which is already redone.

Thanks again for the info

Sikkens cetol marine original on the teak. Cockpit stuff holds up well, although I pull the rails around the back off every few years and touch up do to normal wear. My pulpit and swim platform come off and get a maintaince coat every year. You should not have to use any stain. what ever product you use will bring out the color in the wood when it's stripped and sanded. The sikkens original does have a little what looks to be reddish/brown pigment in it which is used as a UV inhibitor which is why I use that vs the natural/light. When I bought my boat the original owner had redwood deck stain on all the teak, talk about ugly... LOL! Take your time do it right and don't take on too much at once and I'm sure you'll be happy with the results!!
