Toe rail bedding

I have most of the hardware off my deck in order to paint and re-bed everything. Looking at the wooden toe-rail, it looks like it is concave on the bottom. When I put the toe rail back on should this gap be filled with butyl, or is is supposed to be an air gap? The toe rail covers the hull-deck bolts.

Re: Toe rail bedding

It was probably made with a concavity to keep it from rocking. Was there bedding compound originally?

Re: Toe rail bedding

Fill it - it will never be an "air gap", only a crud gap and/or a rot gap.

Re: Toe rail bedding

I will ask the question again to keep the thread going, as I have refinished my teak toe rails and am about to reattach. They are screwed in with #10 screws.
When I removed them there was traces of butyl and also white caulk, not sure what kind.
I have cleaned the deck, what should I use to seal them?

I'd use a low adhesion polyurethane - 3M 4200, Sikkens 291 or the like. If you use the high adhesion stuff like 5200 you'll have to destroy them to ever get them off again.

I've no experience with butyl tape but everything I've read about it referred to bedding metal or plastic onto metal or plastic, not wood. I don't know how, or if it works sealing wood.
