I see Butyl tape as a great solution to a port window. But I still don't see it being used on a traveler where there is flexing and pressure placed upon the hardware.
Not having Butyl tape fail in 29 years on a stationary port with little stress placed on it is far different from deck hardware with pressure and all sorts of pulling being placed on it.
I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
