Bedding deck hardware with 3M 101

I have heard folks recommend dry fitting the hardware, tracing around it, mask off the deck and hardware, fit fitting incuding sealant, then fillet the stuff that squeezes out. The last step is to remove all masking tape.

This seems to me to be too much like work. Here is how I did it and it seemed to work well:

Goob on the sealant
tighten the bolts
Wipe off excess with a rag dipped in varsol.

See pics:
