Thru-hull footbraces

Posted by Wade on Jul 13, 2004

Getting ready to put in the Keepers footbraces and I'm planning to put the bolts through the hull. (i.e. not doing the "bolt-less" footbrace mounting)

I noticed there's no rubber gasket/o-ring that goes between the footbrace mounting screw head and the hull. Do I need to worry about leaks there?
