If the material that these fasteners pass through is not cored, there really is no need to fill the holes with epoxy. Unless you do not plan to reuse them, and instead plan to tap new holes.

I assume there is no coring there, otherwise the factory rep should have urged you to check the condition of the coring before resetting the rubrail fasteners.

If it's solid laminate, I would go with the factory rep's suggestion of 5200, MAYBE downgraded to 4200 if you think you'll need to remove the rubrail at some point.

Even if you fill those holes with epoxy, you will have to wait for it to set-up before you sink the fasteners into it again. And then you will still need to use some kind of waterprooof, durable bedding compound when you tap the screws back in.

Yes John, that's what I was thinking. Those old holes may be stripped out or slightly oversized now and would need potting to get a good bite.

Yeah, could be. If so, it would definitely serve to fill with epoxy then re-tap after it has cured. If there's coring, it should be done no matter what. Heck, it wouldn't hurt a thing to fill with epoxy then re-tap these holes regardlesss.

But I didn't get the impression that Bene505 was having any difficulty with the rubrail mount. I.e., the rubrail had not shown signs of being loose or not well set on the hull-to-deck joint. My impression was that it was more a question of the fasteners being a bit too long for the job and not adequately bedded. So I was just focussing on the simplest solution. Also, I usually give a lot of deference to the factory guys.

I guess we'll have to hear from Bene as to whether there are any other issues in play here.

The rubrail seems firmly attached, at least I grabbed it and tried to pull on it. That was when I was taking the first picture in this thread, while standing on the outside.

It looks like they tapped holes to screw the screws into. Only for some reason, they tapped every hole all the way through.

Not trying to send you someplace else, but I posted an update to this thread at anything-sailing.com and have received some good replies back. (Didn't remember that this is where I posted the original question until someone over there reminded me.)

I removed the rub rail and found a mess of old holes. So now this is a pre-launch priority fix, along with fixing the keel spalding, seacock fixes and bottom painting.

Latest picture is here:



other thread is here: Holes under aft rub rail
