Re: Rebedding chainplates

I just ordered 2 rolls from MaineSail yesterday. I will be doing the same project next week after this weather system passes and will also be re-bedding everything attached to my deck. The PO used a lot of silicone on this boat.

Re: Rebedding chainplates

Thank you for all of the suggestions. We went back to the boat yesterday and removed the wood covering the chainplates. Things look pretty good overall, so when Maine Sail's butyl arrives this week we'll head back down this weekend (weather permitting), pull and inspect the chainplates, and hopefully finish everything up.

It's all in the link I provided to my project.

That amount of butyl would have been fine for sealing the penetration. I also wanted to seal the bottom of the plate to the deck so water and dirt do not get under it.

Since this is not a job you want to do often then I think it makes a lot of sense to do it once and do it right. Maine Sail's stuff is known to be a good and not that much more than the cheap stuff. So it does not really makes sense to use anything else. Plus you help support one of the best do it yourself and objective testing sites out there. (it is not like he is going to retire off of the stuff though)

No. This is the best stuff to use: ***Buy Bed-It Butyl Tape*** Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at pbase.com

Re: Rebedding chainplates

I just finished digging out all the caulk and sealant (including silicone) from the previous owner's decades of stuff and go.

Butyl tape from MaineSail's web site is the way to go, and just from the top as the idea is to keep water out, not seal it in.

Re: Rebedding chainplates

Mainesail has a "sticky" on the top of the the Gear and Maintenance page here at Sailnet.com. That will provide you with the information you are looking for to re-bed the deck hardware.
