Not Much Stretch

Not Much Stretch

This bolt hole has no bevel at the deck level. It was loosened and raised the same amount as the previous bolt, to illustrates how much difference in allowable movement one can attain through the simple step of countersinking.

When I tightened this bolt down most all of the sealant squeezed out leaving very little of it to stretch.
