Re: Where to get Butyl tape?

Yet another vote for Mainesail's butyl. I used it (extensively) in refitting my CS27, and it was excellent to work with. You will NEVER go back to caulking tubes again. Buy MORE than you need so you have it when an unexpected project comes up - this will save you having to "make due" with an inferior sealant when in a hurry.

I find it mind-blowing that something this good is so completely absent from the shelves of West Marine and marina chandlers.
