The last owner of my Cheoy Lee Offshore
41 removed all the deck hardware
to replace the Teak
decks and lost
(or didnt keep) the little trim plates that slide down over the chaimplates to cover the exit openings at the deck
I'd like to know what the thinking is on just not using these parts
at all and sealing around the edges of the chainplates with some acceptable product?
I only have two or three of these little plates and re-making them would be VERY expensive.
So what would you use to seal this area and what are the pros and cons of not using the trim plates?
