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?

Thanks,

Matt

yes it will seal better if there is slight chamfer on the fiber glass next to the chainplate be careful not to scratch the chainplate. slip a very thin piece of sheetmetal in the grove to protect the chainplate and grind the edge with a dremel.

Good to hear the way to seal it better through chamfer. I'll come over to my uncle's place this weekend to give him a hand for his boat and also brake kit and dub wheels on his truck project. Gonna use a sheetmetal as well for the chainplate protection.
