Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape
I'm about to re-step the mast on my '77 Cal 34 and am in the process of bedding my chainplates.
Can anyone tell me if the decks need to be absolutely dry before I put the butyl tape down under the chainplate covers? We are predicted to have a week of rain here in Washington and I just don't want to wait that long to get the chainplates back in.
Also, a big THANK YOU to MaineSail for showing us this information! I have to rebed all of the lifeline stanchions and without this I would have made a huge mistake in choosing the bedding material.
Thanks in advance for any advice on surface condtions for applying the butyl tape.
