There is a HUGE difference between the products. If I did not know they had the same base, I would not believe it. The Home Depot stuff is more like plumber's putty. It will fill the gap but not take a whole lot of movement. When it is compressed, it does not stick and elongate like the stuff Maine Sail is selling when things are moved and pulled apart.

Maine Sail, you DE MAN! Thanks!

Have FUN!
Glad I could help!!!

As I have mentioned many times I tested over 40 products for over a year before bringing Bed-It Tape to the marine market. In fact I am still testing other manufacturers and products and am still in the search for a white or off white products that meets my standards... I think it is a needle in a haystack but I keep trying. Was just sent a sample last week of a "new formulation" and sure enough it was new but still no good....

Glad you liked it and always glad when I can help...
