re-sealing stem fitting on Catalina 22

I recently had to remove my bow stem fitting from my Catalina 22 in order to install the stem reinforcement as well as an anchor roller. There was a very adhesive silicone-like compound holding the fitting to the deck. When I go to replace the stem fitting (which will be sandwiched between the deck and the anchor roller), what would be the best method for resealing? The only two things I have seen recommended with regular frequency are 3M 4200 and butyl tape. I just want some advice before securing it down with the wrong material. Also, is there anything I should wrap the bolts themselves with when reinstalling through the deck? I have never used butyl tape, but is this something I can wrap the threads with to prevent leaks?

Check out mainsail's posts for good information on this (and other maintence issues). He has an excellent web site with "how to" guides and pictures. I don't know how to put a link in this so you will just have to find it or message me and I will send the web site address to you.

I don't think MaineSail has a specific article on bedding a stem fitting. He's a missionary on countersinking deck fitting holes and butyl tape, as you'll find here.
