Stanchion Base Pads - re-bedding job
Looking for some advise, suggestions and recommendations.
Currently in the process of removing and rebedding all deck hardware. The stanchion bases and deck cleats currently sit on Teak pads attached to the fibreglass side decks. The teak pads range in thickness from 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches. The prupose of the teak pad is to provide appropriate angle and heighth for stanchions and other side deck fittings.
I am looking for alternative solution to the teak pads, something low maintenance. Perhaps plastic, acrylic, starboard, or fabricated fibreglass pads or other.
With your material recommendation can you alos suggest the sealant you experienced works best.
