Some bedding compounds will dry out and crack. Butyl, however never dries out or cracks. CS yachts used it on every fitting on deck including the hull/deck joint. My boat is now 35 years old and all the original butyl is as flexible as the day it was installed.

Newfound Metals includes butyl for installation of their stainless ports.

Wally installed these on his meticulous C&C restoration, before he went cruising.
