You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Very much alive and well.

I have been looking for some around here for a little while. Called several RV dealers that just shook their head.
Found one 20 mins away that has bags of the stuff. $6 for a 20ft roll. Happened to be in a Toronto marine store later in the day. $21 for something that looked to be about 1/2 the length, but it did come in a non-recyclable clamshell package.

If you're in Canada, Home Hardware sells butyl tape in rolls at very reasonable prices. Home Depot probably does as well, but I've not looked there.

I had Grainger order me a roll of the 3" wide x 20' long but when i got it today one side had a cover on it that would not come off. I can find narrower but how do you use it in a large area like under a stanchion.

You can cut it to the right size with a sharp blade or if it is for a small area you can form it and roll it in your fingers like plasticene as I did under my winches (so it was just around the bolts in that case to keep the drain slots free of sealant).

my concern was how to apply a 3/4" piece to an area that is 2-1/2" wide. Do you lay strips right next to each other

Yes and when you compress it with the bolts the strips become one big mass..

I lay strips right next to each other and then give them a little rub to join them. When you bolt down the stanchion you are going to get a whole bunch of it back when it oozes out all around. Not hard to imagine at that point that it has filled in little gaps and irregularities pretty well. Depending on the temp when this is all done, you might see some more squished out next time you get back to the boat too.

And then you cut the extra that has squeezed out with a razor and you're finished. It's the easiest bedding clean-up I've ever done.
