Re: Where to get Butyl tape?
I have bought gray butyl online from an RV place, and I've more recently bought some from MaineSail. MaineSail's is less like putty and has more stretch to it--clearly better stuff. The bummer for me is that I've already done most of the rebedding on my boat with the RV butyl--which appears to be doing just fine. One day though, when I'm got nothing else to do on the boat (right!), I'll start re-doing with the good stuff.
I'd leave it until you begin to have issues. The technique & prep, like painting, is 80% of the job..
