Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I have one question, I'm esealing around my chain plates. I want to pour thinkened epoxy around the chain plate to seal the balsa and ensure no water get in. I also want to leave a uniform gap between the hardened epoxy and the chain plate so that I can seal it. Could I install the chain plate wrap the chain plate with butyl tape then pour the thickened epoxy around the butyl tape so that once it hardens the butyl tape will be sealed against the chainplate?
