backing plates permanently glassed in?

Hi:

I am imminently going to install all my backing plates under the stanchion bases and all the other deck bits and pieces. As the under sides tends to be very non flat, a thick epoxy slurry will be needed to gap fill. Is there any reason I shouldn't let the plates be permanently glued in place? I could mold release them and wack them off with a hammer, but I can't think of any good reason I'd want to.

Regards,

Boulter

None-in fact its easier to install the deck hardware if the backing plate isn't loose.

Our boat came from the factory with all backing plates glassed into the laminate.

I would just ensure that the plates are something that can't rot. If water intrudes, have it be something like starboard, stainless, or a block of fiber glass. I wouldn't glass wood in, but that's just me.
