Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape
They are two different steps. The butyl is the sealant between deck and fitting. The Epoxy is to seal the core in case a fitting ever leaked. Most boats, like 98%, do not come from the factory with sealed cores where bolts pass through..
If you want to seal the core you do that first, then bed the fittings.
