Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

MS or others,

I read this entire thread and MS's instructions and I am not certain this question was ever fully answered. I am looking to rebed hardware (stanchions, cleats, etc) on a teak caprail. I intend to strip the old varnish/cetol off and bring the teak back down to bare wood. (needs to be refinished anyway) I like the idea of using Butyl tape. Can I use Butyl tape on teak? Am I better off rebedding the hardware with Butyl tape onto bare wood and then apply cetol? Or should I apply cetol first and then rebed with Butyl tape?

Thanks
