As a temporary repair and assuming you mean a butyl tape, I would expect it to be just fine. Alternates could be any gasket material or rubber sheet like an inner tube or large dinghy patch. You would want to put gaskets under the bolt heads too.

If all you have available is butyl caulk it will be better than nothing...
