Yeah, could be. If so, it would definitely serve to fill with epoxy then re-tap after it has cured. If there's coring, it should be done no matter what. Heck, it wouldn't hurt a thing to fill with epoxy then re-tap these holes regardlesss.

But I didn't get the impression that Bene505 was having any difficulty with the rubrail mount. I.e., the rubrail had not shown signs of being loose or not well set on the hull-to-deck joint. My impression was that it was more a question of the fasteners being a bit too long for the job and not adequately bedded. So I was just focussing on the simplest solution. Also, I usually give a lot of deference to the factory guys.

I guess we'll have to hear from Bene as to whether there are any other issues in play here.
