Chainplate Rebedding - TKRonaBoat

Is that all you used? Seems like not much sealant at all.

It's all in the link I provided to my project.

That amount of butyl would have been fine for sealing the penetration. I also wanted to seal the bottom of the plate to the deck so water and dirt do not get under it.

Re: Rebedding chainplates

Thank you for all of the suggestions. We went back to the boat yesterday and removed the wood covering the chainplates. Things look pretty good overall, so when Maine Sail's butyl arrives this week we'll head back down this weekend (weather permitting), pull and inspect the chainplates, and hopefully finish everything up.

Re: Rebedding chainplates

I just ordered 2 rolls from MaineSail yesterday. I will be doing the same project next week after this weather system passes and will also be re-bedding everything attached to my deck. The PO used a lot of silicone on this boat.
