I have a 36 Sedan 1986, so one of the first, my engine room vents let in water, my tanks rusted through on the top where the salt water sat, but you need to drain water from within tank.

I replaced them with longer range tanks 1750 litres total ie 875 perside giving a much more usable range.

I have a Sedan 36 , same hull different superstructure, when left in the winter it is dry and i only have condensation when the weather is cold outside and it is lived on .

Is the condensation problem when the boat is empty or when you are living on it in the winter?

Why not replace the arch to the same proportions in stainless steel tube with a fabricated hinge and locking bolts .

It would probably be cheaper in the long run and stronger.

If you want the manufacurer of the forward cabin windows let me know. The rear cabin ones sound a problem , i think your only way is to remove them , service them , replace all seals and re bed to the hull, it may be worth while getting a quote for replacement as the cost for removal and refitting i...
