Thanks Dave ill take on board your comments but I always double seal my decks pouring in fastglas resin moving the hull around while it hardens a bit. try it if you haven't already it works.
Response by Dave M on the 27th Dec 2017
Yes but the centre part of back deck on the Al Khubar is removable so you can get to the rudders and motor couplings.
The instructions suggest a close fitting sheet of plasticard will suffice. Didn't for me as the deck get very wet even in calm waters.
Hope you have better luck than me.

Dave i was only thinking about the edging not the centre part i'll keep a close eye on that cheers
