Butyl sealing

It appears there is a strong consensus that butyl tape is currently the preferred method of sealing deck hardware.

I was recently at one of my favourite discount/clearance stores and noticed butyl in caulking tubes.

Is this the same stuff, just in a tube, or is it like silicone - a myriad of variations?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
