Rob, it''s not clear to me what you mean by ''rebed''. Are you merely resealing the exit areas at the deck or hull...or are you/have you pulled the plates for inspection? I''d encourage the latter given the age of your boat, assuming it has not been done in a few years, as the part of the plate most prone to corrosion will be the part hidden from any possible view.

When I recently did this, I found a variety of opinion about what bedding compound to use. In the end I chose 3M''s 5200 and dealt with its tendency to be damaged by UV by painting the chainplate/bedding intersection with several coats of one-part polyurethane. With (hopefully careful) masking, it is not noticeable or makes the bedded area look neat and nicely finished.

Thanks for the input jack. I am considering 4200 or boatlife. I have used 5200 and am happy with the results but due to the age of my boat and possibly needing to work in this area again at a later date I don''t think I want the bedding to be permanent. I will be removing the deck plates for inspection and possibly the chainplate itself it the deck is soft under the plate.
