I just realized your in MD. You should be more than fine so I'd do it now. I thought you were talking about stanchions..

Sorry Main Sail, while I'm in MD, the boat is in Connecticut. That's why I'm up there every two weeks, and it's a choice of this weekend or two weeks from now.

Does that change your opinion?

Thanks!

I'm reviving my own thread, so this is OK, right?

Just wanted to send an update, since I rebedded my first chainplate this past weekend. While it wasn't cold out, it did help to search and read old posts and ask questions here on Sailnet, so thanks!

I used 3M 101 and had no problems. It appeared the core was sealed with epoxy, which is not factory, so it will be interesting to see if the other chainplates were also done.

The time-consuming part was getting the cover off the deck, and also cleaning it and the slot area. It had a lot of sealant in there. But the rebedding was a snap once everything was clean.

Anyway, here's a pic, before fully cleaning the chainplate up (so there's a little sealant residue still on there, but you get the idea). I hope it holds up!

Nice, J. And very nice that a PO sealed your core there. Bodes well for other hardware--and tells you something about the quality of care.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks sailingdog and arf145. Yeah, it's a good sign that it was sealed. It wasn't done the way I'd do it, but you can't have everything. I'll be interested to see if they've all been done this way.

Two weeks before launch should be find from a curing standpoint. Just make sure you leave yourself enough time so that if something goes wrong, you'll have time to fix it.

It seems that every time I touch anything on my boat, something goes wrong

I re-bed all my stuff with 3M 101 when it was getting cold at night and all was well too. I think the 40 degrees for application is mostly so it's not too thick (viscous) to get it out of the tube.

You can leave two light bulbs inside the boat near the chain plates. The heat will be enough to keep the area warm. In this way you will not need a tent.
