Re: Replacing Leaky Windows

consider using butyl tape as the gasket. I would also recomend using 4200 for below the waterline. yse I know your portlights are above water but when it is blowing like **** ,raining and the decks are awash it might seem like you are under water. Also, Captain tulleys is also helpful once everything is in place since it helps to seal tiny gaps, if present. We rebedded our portlights about two years ago now and seem to be rock solid.
