Congratulations! The new plates look fantastic! A note on the butyl and ceiling replacement. I bedded some stanchions on my Catalina in butyl and I found that the butyl continued to compress for some months as the weather warmed and required tightening twice. So, I would leave the ceiling boards off until you're sure they stop moving. You can slice away the butyl with a credit card or razor and then dab the loose bits with a wad of butyl. Goop hand cleaner works well for getting butyl or uncured polyester laminate off your hands. I'll drop you an email about your old plates. Regards,Matt
Thanks Matt.Makes sense. I had butyl squeeze out when it warmed up when I did the deck handrails. No hurry to put it all back together anyway. Plenty of other work to go around.
Yes the chainplate installation looks great. And the motor looks brand new! I was not aware of the Beckson clear covers-nice idea. Things are coming along aboard and thanks for the video to provide a glimpse of what you're using and how things go together, good stuff.
Thanks William. I'm happy with how things are going so far. I got the idea with Beckson plates from others and thought it was a good idea too. Hopefully that turns out well.
