    15F Ride Plate Install

    So I just received my R&D ride plate and need a little help installing. I am not sure where to silicone. I have searched this forum and couldn't find the info. I don't want to assume and apply where it shouldn't be .

    thanks

    Another thought, do we reinstall the rubber pads that are used with the stock plate, between it and the hull?

    You want to seal the edge of the plate to the hull basically make sure its smooth with the hull. I dont think you NEED the little rubber deals, just make sure its sealed.

    Thanks Sean.

    So a bead of silicone around the entire plate face and then I can fill in the gaps on the edges, front, sides and back smooth. The only instructions I have found was from a WORX plate and they said to also use silicone on the bolts. i would have thought blue loctite (removeable) on the threads instead? R&D didn't have any documentation at all.

    Yep, if you use loctite it will secure the bolts but corrosion can still get in, silicone helps prevent that.

    so use the silicone on the threads then. Will the silicone help hold the bolts in.
