Rebedding Sail Tracks

No takers, huh?

I've got to do the same. Probably early this summer. I haven't done this task before either but I've rebedded quite a few exterior fixtures before; hand rails; cleats; etc. I plan on rebedding in the same fashion as other fixtures after inspecting the existing mounting holes to insure that there is no delamination. I'm not expecting that the area is cored (Karma is an '81 O'Day 34) but if it is, I'll enlarge the existing holes; epoxy and redrill them to insure that any future leaks do not get between the laminations.

I'm just not looking forward to unfastening and fastening all the fasteners.
