Re: Rebedding chainplates

are the plates behind that box?

many ways to bed plates..

I used sikaflex, butyl is good, stretchy sealants...whatever

it does depend a bit on hoy they are installed but Im a fan of only sealing from the top...never from under...that way if you do spring a leak you can trace it better

all I see in your pic is some damp wood at the bottom of that box joint

cheers

Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
