rubbery material at hull-keel joint - what to replace it with?

Working on the boat yesterday I got to get a closer look at the rust around the keel to hull joint. It only appears where I did work last year.

Before


During


There appears to be some type of rubbery material up in the joint.

Any clues what it is? My marina neighbor said that something like Silkaflex (?) is used there because of the expension and contraction of the 2 diffferent materials due to temperature changes.

Any clues what to use to replace it?

Brad
