Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I've read at least 19 pages, sorry if this has been asked and answered.

First, FANTASTIC article Maine Sail, pure gold!

I was wondering if anyone in the tropics, have issues with butyl "running" a bit.
If so, what solutions have you come up with? Is butyl compatible with other caulks? Maybe caulk a perimeter thin bead of something like 4000uv to "skin" or form a barrier to the butyl? Crazy talk?

Why not get the black butyl? Is this due to tracking it around the boat?

Side note: I've used 3Ms take on butyl tape strip caulk(http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/mediawe...DS_08578_P.pdf ), I liked it, bought it from Bluewater ship store in Texas. Did very well but I only had the boat another year after that work. I will find out how well it stood up when i see the boat in a couple weeks, I haven't owned the boat in 13 years.

Again, sorry if this has been explained already. Great thread.
