I'll be re-bedding my bow pulpit soon and I have a question on the application of the butyl tape. Obviously it goes around the bolts as per Maine Sail's instructions.
But would you also cover the entire bottom of the plate base with strips of it? I don't see why this would be needed if the bolt holes are sealed with it. Your thoughts..
