Re: Chainplate Sealing

I just redid my bulkheads and resealed the chainplates and I used LifeCaulk as well as I have the cap and slot scenario on my O' Day 25. Will be re-bedding some leaky deck hardware, blocks, mast step, toe rail, with butyl though. I used LifeCaulk generously and then cleaned up after. Was a bit messy but, not overly.

Well I found some info on the Boatlife website. It appears that LifeCaulk and Lifeseal are both rated excellent for this job (deck fittings). The main differences are that you can't paint over Lifeseal but it's compatible with plastics. Lifecaulk isn't compatible with plastics (it is OK with fibreglass), but can be painted over.

Thought that info might be useful to someone!
