Re: water-tight trailers

Hi Diane:  I use a very effective and cheap sealant on my aluminum canoe.
It is gutter chaulking.  Comes in a foot-long tube. Don't tell anyone.  I
wouldn't want the secret to get out and drive the cost of gutter chaulking
through the roof "so to speak."  I put a little around each rivet that seems
to be leaking, and smear it in like grease.  It seals the aluminum and then
forms a paintable crusty layer outside.  It stays fairly flexible so it can
be scraped off with a putty knife if you wanted to re-do it sometime.  It
lasts a few years on the canoe, which is constantly being drug over rocks
and sand, so it would probably last forever on the trailer roof.
