      I have never been able to  find the headliner plugs at a hardware store.  I have checked several hardware stores, Grainger, and three electrical supply stores.  The only plugs that I have been able to find are steel.

      Which hardware store have you seen them at?

      The turning blocks on by S34 MKII were though bolted.  I knew they were because my headliner had plugs in it to give access.

      If there are no plugs in the head liner below it then they are probably screwed in.  If they are leaking don't let it go.  There is balsa core there that will become compromised.

      If you have screws and want to go to through bolts that is an easy job, that I have done by sending a drill bit through to hole all the way down through the headliner.  Then go in the boat with a 1 inch hole saw, which is the size of the almost 100 plugs in my headliner for genoa tracks and winches etc.  Glen at Sabre can sell you the plugs.

      Turning block on my mainsheet (a Sabre 34 MKII) was not through bolted, just screws.

      Sounds like butyl tape would be a quick & mess free bedding option for you.
