I removed, repaired, and refinished all wood from a [1991 Boston Whaler SUPER SPORT 13]. The wood had been previously bedded with some sort of compound, adhesive, sealant, or something. Is replacing the wood with some sealant such as 3M4200 (or other) a good thing? If so, what should I use? Thanks.

I am currently refinishing my wood on my 1977 Outrage. I did not bed it down, and I am glad I did not, as that would have made it even harder to remove. I would seal the screws with silicone and not bed.

I would only consider sealing any wood that directly mounts to the deck and then only if it was plywood.

In my Chris-Craft restorations I always used the Sika brand (Sikaflex tubes), Dolphinite, or Interlux Boatyard in a can. Personally I stay away from 3M unless you need to glue something; then the 5200 and 4200 are great. But for bedding an item to a boat use the [Sika brand (Sikaflex tubes), Dolphinite, or Interlux Boatyard in a can].

Why are you replacing wood with sealant? I don't understand how you have used the word "replacing." Can you clarify?
