Your better to turn the nut than the fastener, in most cases...
as turning the nut will tend to spin the sealant out of the hole. I suspect Mainesail knew this.
Tighten part way, squeezing some sealant out, then tighter just a little while later. This depends on the application and the load, to some extent.
