Best gloop for fixing in a frameless window?

One of the windows on my boat leaks, a PO had used what looks like normal clear silicone and it's breaking down. I did some searching on here and couldn't come up with anything conclusive to indicate the best substance to use to re-glue the window.
I obviously know that I have to ping the window out, clean it all up and then fix it back in, but what should I use to fix it in? These are frameless windows so needs to be an actual adhesive rather than the wonder of butyl tape.

5200 would be my first guess.

My gawd mun, why would you wish such a evil thang on a fellow human


I think what you're looking for is 3M 795

Dow 795 or 739 are designed for glazing without fasteners. They are used on office towers to hold the glass on.

Do not use 5200.

Thanks folks, I will attempt to find some Dow 795, and a few sunny days. Not sure which is going to be harder to find up this way!

3M Ultra Glaze worked on the frameless windows in my 24 C&C. Drawback, it is gooey and black. Good points, it is pliable and long lasting. Good luck!

Seems no-one round here sells the Dow stuff. Anyone tried King Kaulk for something like this?

I actually had to do a quick patch a month or two ago on one of my ports. I used butyl (because that's what I had on hand.) Rolled out a thick roll and pressed the glass into it. Still holding after a couple months and several heavy rain showers. Think I'll just leave it and see how it holds up. We haven't had any hot weather yet and I think if there is a failure, it will be from hot weather.

Not sure what is in the recommeded products, but use a silicone caulk. Polysulfide and some of the others do not seal well on the plastic window. Chased a leak for most of a season before someone clued me in.
