Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape
BubbleheadMd, I too am faced with bedding the grab rails. My boat doesn't have grab rails
inside. My plan is to apply the tape to the rail where it mates with the cabin top. I'll clean the teak with acetone then apply the tape, cut out the hole for the screw, set the rail on
the cabin top, then screw it down. I've done this to a couple of cleats (bedded the screw heads there), and tested it this morning. YEAH no more leaks.
