Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I am very interested in the advice on resealing fixed ports that are attached with screws all around with no frame. Can I just use butyl or do I need to us it in combination a sealant?
Thanks

Do you mean they are just plexiglass or lexan without frames? If so I would use an adhesive like Dow 795.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

What modifications in this procedure would be recommended if I was mounting a small clete in the cockpit on a piece of mahogany that would be attached to the cockpit combing. Would you still recommend using butyl tape between the wood piece and the fiberglass combing. In other words, I want to mount a small clete to terminate a furling line, but I want it elevated about an inch above the combing for ease of use. So I made a small round piece of mahogany which I will epoxy clear and varnish just big enough to firmly mount the small clete. Then I simply planned to use four mounting bolts and drill through the wood and fiberglass to a backing plate or 4 washers so the clete, wood and fiberglass is all bolted together. Any other suggestions?

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I have stanchions that are held down with screws, not thru bolted. Can butyl tape still be used?

The only real condition necessary for butyl tape is that something else is fastening the pieces together - buyl is sticky but not an adhesive. In this case you have that with the screws so I think that will work...as long as you trust the screws. That's not considered a very robust method for fastening stanchions.

Like I said above, so long as the screws are adequately fastening the ports I'd think butyl is perfect.

EDIT: Maine Sail and chrisncate said the same thing a page back as well.
