Re: sealing rigging screw

One of the things I noticed about some clc kayaks and the first few I made is that an occasional rigging screw strayed to the edge of the sheer clamp or through it. Beside the problem that presents for hands or gear it opened up sealed wood and allowed damp sheer clamps to stain the exterior of the hull. And if you didn't drill the holes for the screws with a tapered bit (Fullers bit?) then it was very easy to strip the soft cypress against the hard/epoxied ply deck when the screw was sent in lubed with silicone sealant.
