Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I would use it anywhere above the waterline where the item is bolted in place. I don't think an item attached with screws can always compress it enough. It can be dissolved by fuel as well.

If attaching wood or to wood I would make sure the wood is sealed and not bare. Varnish, paint, or ideally the wood is epoxy sealed first, as it probably should be anyway for longevity.
