[QUOTE=npm108;498294]Thanks Colcreate. I don't need to remove it on a regular basis perhaps once a year at most as I am happy to use the bilge pump and then sponge to get rid of any remaining water. The Deck has its own scuppers.
Do you think a chemical compound like Loctite 567 would be better than thread tape? Boat stays in the water for 4 months in summer so I need something safe/good.
Perhaps there is a product you can recommend?
Hi. Use 'single wrap' PTFE tape. It's a lot thicker than the standard tape, and it a lot better. Don't be tempted to wind to much on the threads though. 1/2 overlap will be fine. I use it and havn't had any trouble.
