Re: Genoa Chain Plate bolts Leaking in aft hanging closet

I have been using that butyl tape over the boat for a few years. However, for this application I think I would use a polysulfide like boat life or something similar. I would not feel comfortable using butyl as I don't think I could get a continuous bond all the way through the hull.. Using butyl on deck fittings is great as you can put some around the underside of bolt holes and then some under the head of the bolts and it works great , but for the chain plate bolts I would not use butyl.

Hello James,
