Go to a glass shop and get some Butyl tape. My boat is 25 yrs old and everything was bedded with Butyl. It is still flexible, and fortunatly the person who installed it did a great job. It can get a little messy, but anything can be. Mask your ports, and the surrounding area, clean area and part well, and work slow. If you take your time and do it right, it will be the last time you will have to do it for a very long time.
