Tuning the rig....

Britontoss.com. Used his DVD for years and very good. Lots of explanation. Also his book "Riggers Apprentice" helps assess your rig.

Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I am very interested in the advice on resealing fixed ports that are attached with screws all around with no frame. Can I just use butyl or do I need to us it in combination a sealant?
Thanks

Google sparcraft or charleston spar. Have the model numbers from the rigrite site. Try their oceans series for a match.

I have no affiliation. Let us know if this works.
