I have a deck stepped mast on my Bristol 27. While I have the mast down, I removed the mast deck plate. (I had noticed a small leak last season and found it was where the ant. cable passé through) I also found a poor job of bedding. I've cleaned up the area as best I can, made sure it's dry and that there is no damage. I've drilled out the holes, filled with epoxy and re-drilled. Now I'm wondering what I should use to seal things up. I have butyle tape (from Main Sail) and it's what I figured I'd use. But thought I'd ask everyone's opinion since the mast is so much heavier than other deck hardware. Thoughts?
