Re-bedding chain plate cover/screws with Bed-it
This may be a question for Maine Sail. I just bought some Bed-it (thanks for getting it our so fast - wow!) and I need to temporarily rebed my chain plate covers. I have some water seeping through to the cabin. I'm going to go through all 6 chain plates in the spring and check for rot in the knees, etc. but in the meantime I want to stop or slow the water intrusion till it's out and covered for the winter.
For the chain plate slot in the deck, I assume I "countersink" or cut out an angle around the chain plate and fill that with Bed-it? Then - the cover - it is screwed into the deck. I know I am supposed to limit rotation of bolts, but how do I handle screws? Will Bed-it work for those?
