plus one on butyl tape for bedding and all sorts, re bedded grab rails and used to replace a gasket in a leaking hatch, works a treat!

Can Butyl tape be used below the water line for thru hull fittings?

No, underwater I would use 4200 or Sika 291.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

FYI
I have some wet core. Turns out that a previous owner put in a track for a jib lead inside the stays, ok so far. What they did however was to bend the track as it was bolted in so that followed the cabin trunk. The continual stress of the track trying to straighten caused the leaks. Had they properly sealed the core that may have not caused a problem, but then again the stress could have cracked the epoxy or squeezed out the sealant nonetheless.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Does anyone have a suggested product to seal the cabin top wooden companionway tracks where the top pieces slide in? It is screwed, not bolted, with no access due to inner liner. So after sealing the screw must be turned. I do want to be able to remove it and rebed when necessary.

For Mainesail, wow, super informative post!

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I rebedded my non-opening portlights with white butyl tape and cut off the excess butyl with a razor blade. The butyl gasket is flush and visible.

I am afraid it may attract dirt over time and was wondering if there is anything that can be done about this? Perhaps put a layer of another curing sealant on there?

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Hello everyone. The quality of information in this thread caused me to register on Sailnet. Many thanks.

I am seeking confirmation that "Duct Seal" sometimes known as "Duct Seal Putty" is the same material as butyl tape but has the advantage of being more readily available for purchase and economical. Some of you may be familiar with duct seal as it often used to seal around electrical service entrance cables where they enter the meter housing.

I've used both butyl tape and duct seal in the past and they seem identical. The MSDS for duct seal lists the chemical family as "butyl rubber composite" which sounds promising?

I'll just let MainSail test it and buy whatever he sells.

It may cost me a couple of bucks but it is pretty small potatoes and I want him to continue to do as he does.
