Sealing Chainplates


They are thru the deck on the side deck. I have removed and rebedded this plate at the end of last season. It has started to leak again. Did not leak first season but then I refinished the deck. Not sure if leaking is thru the screw holes or beside teh chainplates.

I am assuming the correct "best method" is to clean out all current bedding compounds and use epoxy to create a rot free entrance into the boat. Then rebed. Just looking for suggestions and or confirmation.
