Re: Mooring Cleat Backing Plate Installation
Definitely use thickened epoxy to bed the plates. Simply wrap the backing plate with packaging tape - the clear stuff. It releases very well and when you peel it off - voila, the plate is as it was when you started.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
