3m 101?

I just looked online for 3m 101 at both West Marine and Jamestown Distributors. I can't find it on either website. Has this stuff been discontinued or did I do a poor job looking for it?

It has been discontinued AFAIK. I was given this information by Maine Sail, who I trust to be accurate on these matters.

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.

Bummer... I have been using it to bed all of my deck hardware. I liked the idea that it would flex with the part rather than adhere so strongly that it might stress the fiberglass beneath.

What do you think is a nice replacement... 4000 UV... 4200... BoatLife...?

Yes, discontinued. Boat Life Life Calk is the closest you'll find in a marine brand, but still not quite 3M 101. I bought a bunch from Hamilton before it was all gone..

Sikaflex 295 UV or 201US are both low adhesion polyurethane products that I have had good success with. UV 4000 and 4200 are about 300 PSI adhesion and 201-US and 295-UV are between 160 - 175 PSI. 3M 101 was about 130 PSI..

That pretty much leaves BoatLife LifeCalk. IIRC, it is the most similar product to 3M 101.

Thanks for the info. Too bad they discontinued what seems to have been a popular product. Obviously not popular enough...

It was my favorite

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Ace Hardware Outlet

...is listing some still in stock. I ordered some, but I have not yet received an email confirming shipment. I have my fingers crossed.

Good luck,
