Author Topic:   console installation

I recently finished building a new console for my Nauset. Question: before inserting the screws into the holes which will anchor the console to the floor, should I pack or fill the holes with something to maintain a water tight seal? Any advice would be appreciated.

A bit or 4200 or silicone is a smart move, both in the floor and where the screw head meets the countersink of the cleat, assuming that is how you are installing.

For any screw that may have to be removed at a later date, we use 3M 101.

Dive1, what does 3M 101 consist of-polysufide, silicone, etc. I never heard of that one since most people use 4200 or 5200? Regards-Jack Graner.

101 is Polysulfide. Water cures it, so you
can put the boat in the water immediately.
It stays soft, so it won't crack. I think
it's the right stuff for most screws.

I put 101 in the hole, then stick the screw
in the end of the tube of 101 to get 101 on
the screw.

4200/5200 are great if you want to glue two
things together.
