Re: Loops Error, Read Thi

I use little blocks of scrap wood to form a base for my loops. The wood base serves to spread the forces on the loop over a broader area away from the hole. A small bead of clear silicon bathroom sealer on the wood before inserting in the deck also creates a completely water tight seal (important in the bulkhead areas!).
This pic is from my early loops -- I make the bases approximately half that size now.
