Re: Best of the bad choices- re-bedding chainplate cover
I guess you are not near a Home Depot, Lowes or Walmart? All three carry 4200 here.
You are not talking about a major structural seal, stay away from 5200 as said above. If you go with silicone just make sure it is silicone ADHESIVE, not just regular silicone. Not just for the adhesive properties, I've just found it to last much longer. You'd be surprised how strong it is, I use it all the time in a pinch and bet it is just about as strong as 4200. Marine goop is probably a silicone adhesive but check the package. I use any "outdoor, waterproof" silicone adhesive, even below the waterline....never had it fail.
