Sealant for below the waterline...

I need to re-seal around the depth sounder, as we had some water intrustion around the depth sounder during a rowdy sail from HHI to JAX. What is a suitable below-the-waterline sealant for this?

3m 4000 UV should work well. I'd normally recommend 3m 101, but it has been discontinued.

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.

Thanks, SD. I read in some magazine -- I believe it was the December issue of "Dumbass Sailor," that rabbit droppings work well. Anyone else tried it?

Yeah, but they have to be the right kind of rabbit droppings. The ones you're looking for taste like peppermint, so start licking rabbit droppings and you might find some of the right ones and save yourself some money.

Excellent! This is the kind of technical detail I'm after. Dumbass Sailor is a wonderful magazine. It's bursting at the seams with all sorts of great advice for the dumbass sailor! Thanks, SD!
