I've been pondering how to stop water ingress at the slot the paddle shaft sits in, the deck structure covers most of it on the inside with still enough room for considerable water ingress.



Decided on 2mm pvc and asked missus very nicely if she had any thin felt in her craft stuff I scored some 1mm white felt, made her a coffee
The plan is to saturate the felt with oil or melted grease. Ideas welcome.
 


Sitting in position when assembled and bolted in position I'll fit a collar or perhaps a spring between the wheels to the paddle shaft to hold the cover in place.



The decal for Josie's  name decal on one side had a fault so I applied a wet rag and soaked it off and made another today all being well I'll apply it tomorrow as well.

Nothing wrong with that solution, but I would worry about long term damage from an oil of graded soaked rag on the hull that may end up rotating or catching on the paddles, also the amount of dirt that the grease will pick up may lead to further damage...

Only other suggestion I have is to fit some type of bushing to the shaft, and silicon the bush and the remaining hole to create a water tight seal, that way should you need to remove the paddles for any reason you simply have to run a blade down the slot to release the silicon and refill once done. Can be a long winded to keep resealing it every time but maybe in this case it’s the a way to go without introducing the risk of damage to the boat.

Sadly that stuff is water soluble, it wouldn’t last 5 mins with the paddle going.

You could always make an insert from plastic with a backing that you can screw to the hull inside, then run some Vaseline on the plate to help seal it, that’s a quick way to remove the plate but also keep the slot sealed, the plate may also be a little taller than the hull line so when the tops on it also seals the join line as well.

sounds like my models Damien...…

however, have you thought of car body grommets that fit into a car bulkhead and wire pass through them...…..easy to fit and quite waterproof.

I also use those type gromets usually for when I drill bulkheads so I can pass cables up and down a boat so the cables don’t start getting frayed or rubbing about the frame.

But they would be a method to help seal providing you can also seal the slot.
