Which goop for bedding
I have done my search here and figure 4200 would be best for bedding all my hardware and other upcoming projects.
As my first project I had drilled a hole below water line and installed a drain plug to clean out the bilge, its a trailerable boat. I have had trouble finding 4200 here in town. I had a huge 10 oz tube of 4200 the only size I could find locally. When reading the back of the tube it said, the tube should be used up within 24 hours of opening. I ended up just applying silicone and using screws to hold the drain, to fill the hole and will do it with an appropriate polyurethane when doing other projects coming up.
As my schedule has me away from home all day only to return late each evening, I was hoping to be able to come home and add install a few items each night if time and energy allows.. At this pace i will have to open a tube of 4200 each night then throw it away.
With this in mind I am looking to order a bunch of small tubes of 4200 to get this project going. I might get one long weekend day to do lots of these things at once but so far the weather has not cooperated and the season is nearing the end.
Is there another product that might be a suitable substitute for my needs say 3m 101 or Life-Calk? Or should I just order lots of small tubes of 4200? Is a primer recommended?
