Agreed that it is definitely something that is handy to keep on hand. Never know when you might need it, and it's just ideal for so many options.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I bought a roll from MainSail last year, wondered the same thing as you are right now.

I can't tell you how glad I am to have a roll hanging around. I've dipped into it so many times for different projects. Guess what, still have a fair amount left for more projects. Like the guy above said, it doesn't wear out.

MANY Thanks, I now feel confident and competent for the task... And will have to do it ONCE. Excellent info and pictures - I hope I can find other articles as good for the other tasks awaiting me as a new owner...

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

+1.
Thanks Mainesail. Ordered your tape, and installed per your instructions last year (after first over-drilling and potting with epoxy).
No leaks.

Why would anyone second guess something that has already been proven in the field?
Two words: El Cheapo.

Not worth the hassle. Just buy the good stuff and follow the detailed instructions, and then Mainesail won't have to answer a bunch of stupid questions online...

Simple as that.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

This is a superb tutorial with excellent photographs, thank you. One question:

Should I line the entire underside of my genoa track (all 3m of it) with tape or can I get away with just doing the bolts? I've done my stay-sail track already with just tape around the bolts and it was easy to do, but only afterwards did it occur to me that perhaps I should have lined the underside.

I recorded me installing my stay-sail track, which you can see here (note that I now have white tape to do the rest of the fittings and I will not be screwing down the bolts just to put them in place as you see here). Jump to 2:08 minutes in:


On various youtube clips I've seen stanchion bases bedded with tape just around the bolts, not the underside of the fitting.

Any thoughts?

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Bed the entire fitting. You don't want water anywhere underneath any item. For one thing in northern areas it can freeze, causing undue stress on the attachment.

Here's the issue though: for every bolt hole there is a hole for the car to lock into. That goes all the way through the track. If I seal the underside that hole remains filled with water.
