Hi André,

I'm fairly sure that the only way to replace the seals is to remove the complete assembly and split the frame. We had all the windows removed and re-sealed by a contractor when we bought our 23. It's not a trivial job. As you noticed the deckhead is supported by the frames but this will not be a problem as long as only one frame is removed and worked on at a time. The main problem is the unusual way the frames are installed. The top flanges are sandwiched between the inside edge of the deckhead (cabin roof) and an internal wooden batten that supports the headlining and curtain rails. To access the screws you have to remove the gutter. Since the contractor took ours away to refurbish I didn't get to see the frames split but I'm guessing that you'd need to take off the top rail of the frame to release the sliding window and then re-seal the fixed pane on reassembly. Our contractor used black silicone sealant for this and an oil-based mastic to bed the frames to the hull.
