Butyl use with nonthru bolt applications?
Recently got a roll of Butyl (thanks! Looks like great stuff). Have an older US Boat, mast down for rerigging. The stepmast base is held by 4 deep screws. I tried the butyl but ran into the problem of when turning the screws, the turning motion would start wrapping the surrounding butyl.
Would this still be a correct application to use the butyl around (slightly away from the screws) the base, pressing (or standing) on it, then mounting the deep screws in place?
