Bedding deck hardware with butyl tape

In reply to Main Sail:

We do use Sika 295UV at Morris, primarily in applications where installation calls for a larger, "beauty-bead" type backfill. Certain window and portlight installations, for example.

Thanks again.

My boat has a transom mounted rudder with pintles and gudgeons. I will be replacing the gudgeons this winter due to some wear-induced damage on one of them. I looks like the OEM installation actually used a rubber or vinyl gasket material.

For my replacement, would butyl tape be an appropriate sealant, or should I use a curing sealant. If so, what type of sealant would you recommend?

Any answers to my questions?

I used butyl tape on my gudgeons.

Butyl is fine if they are above the waterline. I would use Sika 291 or 4200 if below the waterline.

Thanks for the advice. If the gudgeons are below the waterline, then I have bigger problems than my rudder!

The lower gudgeon is below the waterline on many boats - mine included.

I was just joking, but thanks for your comment. Although both of my gudgeons are above the waterline at rest, a full cockpit in following seas may cause the lower gudgeon to be submerged, or at least deluged by waves. In light of this, I'll go with a curing sealant instead.
