Sabre did too. It is hard to find because even the glazing industry has moved towards adhesive sealants. Butyl is more labor intensive to do it right, hence the move buy builders away from it. The rolls also collect factory dust if not kept clean something they don't have to worry about with gun injected goop..

It took me months to find the "right stuff" that the builders used to use because the glazing and RV industries are now using a slightly different material, still butyl but not the same consistency...

Look up Recreational Vehicles in the phone book, call and ask if they have butyl tape. Most do.

In my area (Victoria) there is no problem finding gray butyl in hardware stores at $5 or so a roll.

MS - can you give us a source for the butyl you are using? I purchased a roll from an online RV dealer about a year ago and after lots of rebedding projects I'm almost out and about to place another order.

Well crap!

It took a bit to get mine.

Now I don't know. It is grey. It came from a RV place in Tampa - world famous Lazy Days. , Well, the store next to it anyway.

You can get it directly from MS!

SailboatOwners.com - Marketplace - Category - For sale - Bed-It - Butyl Bedding Tape

Disclaimer: No financial interest in MS... but grateful for all that he's done for the community.

[EDIT:] I just checked the link above and could not find the advertisement that I originally referenced. I did some poking around and found this from Maine_Sail;

Guys,

I will be away on business from Jan 28th through about April 25th. During that time I will not be able to ship butyl tape.

I will resume shipping the butyl when I get back. The tape I sell is not readily available but there are some products out there that can work OK. If you need it fast you might need to buy another type of butyl tape from another an on-line source. As always use gray and not black!!
This may explain why he has been so quiet lately...

Deck Hardware using Butyl Tape

Maine Sail,
In the slides it looks as if the cleat was aluminum using stainless steel bolts. Will the Butyl provide proper isolation between the two materials to prevent corrosion?
Thanks for your presentation on Butyl Tape

What ever you do, do NOT get the black butyl rubber tape... you will regret it... Get the grey or white stuff.

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.

Guys,

Based on some good questions I've had I made some major changes to the original post and made it much more detailed with a LOT more photos.

You might want to go back and check out the changes...
