Jim, what exactly are you rebedding? I would not think of 5200 as caulk, but as permanent, very permanent, glue. You will likely have to break the item to get it off again.

I've caulked so much stuff over the years, that I'm probably personally responsible for at least one 3M executive bonus payout. However, it doesn't last as long as more modern solutions. Particularly, for hardware that is stressed, like handholds. I'm a convert to butyl tape.

Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

Minne, I was kidding. I was going along with BLJones' comment about the most interesting thread. I'm a fan of butyl (ordered from Main Sail), though I've also use Life Seal for some projects, too. I know to essentially stay away from 5200 (a bit of an exaggeration) for most of my projects.

This my friends is Interlux Schooner 92, a Phenolic varnish, the varnish traditionally used for the finest bright work. Click on it for a better view.

Epiphanes varnish on a cockpit table leaf. 10 coats. Nothing like it.

Minne, next time you take a picture of a nearly mirror-smooth surface, could you get a cuter model to pose in the pic?

I'd agree with that.. although, having used both International's "Schooner Tropical" (presumably the same as the Interlux stuff), Epiphanes and Uroxsys (in increasing order of cost!) I'd have to say that the more expensive the product the better it is. Epiphanes is really very good, but the Uroxsys stuff (if you can get it) is easier to use, longer lasting and at least as nice to look at.

..but, now, being tired of the poor shelf-life of varnishes in general and no longer being willing to watch $$$ worth of varnish go off in the tin, I now just use the cheap stuff and go sailing.
