Do NOT epoxy over the keel bolts. The surveyor needs to be keelhauled for that 
idea. Sealed stainless = corrosion AND how the &&&& would you ever be able to 
tighten them or inspect them ever again?

Subject: Stus-List Mast boot and keel bolts

I'm sure both of these topics have been covered before, but A) any suggestions 
on keeping the little bit of water that drips down the mast from coming in at 
all? I'd like to seal it up completely (old submariner habit of trying to keep 
all the water out of the people tank.)  B) When I had the boat surveyed the 
surveyor wrote that the keel bolts need to be sealed which I assume means 
prepping and then pouring epoxy into the bilge until the bolts are covered. Has 
anyone done this on a 35-3 or do you know what the ramifications are if I leave 
them exposed. It doesn't seem to be impacting anything right now but as with 
anything exposed to sea water it will eventually. Thanks for helping a newbie 

1987 C&C 35-3
