after installing my jib on my wave (with cup holder )

I miss read the instructions and thought the hardware went near the front of the boat

so I unscrewed the long black thingy.

then I called the place where I got it and he said no goes near the middle then I found the other holes where it goes

now during this i unscrewed the front to middle 9 screws might of been 8 and then I heard a thud.

I realized after this and looking in the hull the backing got unscrewed.

so i just got it screwed back on. buy with lots of bad words and yelling. as my had didn't fit inside of the inspection hole. (they could of make it 2 inches larger and you could get your arm in)

so I kinda siliconed it as my brand new 3m marine silicon top didn't work. ( more cursing)

I didn't get much under the it. will this cause me issues? from the image to the front of the boat.

I ran a bead on the top and bottom but not much under the black metal.

I hope this makes sense.

The 3m marine silicone should go on each screw. There is no need to run it along the length of the trampoline track. The left hand screw in the picture does not seem to be screwed flush
