Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I added a roll to an order for other stuff from Hamilton Marine. I look forward to "having fun" with it. I hope Maine gets a fair amount of money from the sales through Hamilton.

Maine Sail, Thank you. The blocks are permanently "glued" to the deck but im going to mount the hardware according to you instructions. Thanks for the reply and thank you for the well prepared instructions and photos. I feel much better prepared for this job now. We will be splashing on the 13th of april and starting our summer of multiple small trips cruising north for an eventual destination of Rockland maine. Hope to see you on the water as we pass!

Im pretty sure the used "The Devils glue" to mount the wood since i cannot make it budge even with great force. Off coarse every bock was siliconed. I have scraped and sanded all the wood. Can i use the method countersink/butyl on the wood blocks as well? Thank you ahead of time for any help. Michael, Charlotte NC
Yes. You will bed the boat side of the block as well as the hardware side..

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Depends upon temperature. The colder it is the slower it oozes out.. The consistency does not change (at least if you are using Bed-It Tape) so you could re-tighten a year later if you needed to....

Could make those small adjus Also after many days or immediately after first tighten?

Several small tightenings until the butyl stops oozing out. Try not to twist the bolt just the nut.

Not sure what the sealant is in the hatch frame now,but it is soft and pliable,and I suspect original to my 1982 boat.
I don't recommend it for lens to frame unless it was an emergency fix to "get you home".. The proper sealant for hatch lens to frame would be a product such as Dow 795 of Sika 295UV with the special primer.

Frame to deck is fine but lens to frame I don't advise...

Butyl is not the best choice for sealing acrylic in a hatch frame.

The best choices are Dow 795, GE SG 4000, or Sika 295. The Sika requires a primer.
