One of my complaints about the SJ23 design is that water collects and stands at either end of the traveler when sitting at the dock and presumably on a trailer if it's level. As a result personally I would do nothing less than the most permanent rebedding resealing process I could come up with.
I plan on pulling mine and rebedding it. At the same time I may get longer bolts and do some filling and raise that area so that water runs off instead of standing. That will make the traveler a little more in the way of the companion way but I think it will be worth it in the long run. An alternative would be to plumb in a drain into the cockpit similar to, but on a smaller scale, the cockpit drains.
Chuck, I've never seen this documented or even discussed. Do you know of anyone that has done this or am I just agonizing over nothing?
