Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

FYI
I have some wet core. Turns out that a previous owner put in a track for a jib lead inside the stays, ok so far. What they did however was to bend the track as it was bolted in so that followed the cabin trunk. The continual stress of the track trying to straighten caused the leaks. Had they properly sealed the core that may have not caused a problem, but then again the stress could have cracked the epoxy or squeezed out the sealant nonetheless.
