How To Pick The Right Sealant - BoatUS Magazine

In the latest issue of BoatUS they have an article on sealants and they mention a
"small supplier in Maine selling a butyl tape selected specifically for marine use."

We know who that is.
Congratulations

Re: Own very own MaineSail is famous

For as much as I take stabs at the "Let it cure to form a gasket, tighten twice" method of bedding deck hardware I have to give Don Casey kudos for a decent article...

Re: Own very own MaineSail is famous

I know I have learned quite a bit from reading MaineSail's posts and website. I even have purchased some of this famous Butyl Tape. He is definitely an asset to this forum and sailing in general.

Re: Own very own MaineSail is famous

All of MaineSail's how-to's seem to be exceptional. Every time I take on a project I check to see if he has posted a tutorial.

One of my spring projects is a "hull job." I have gathered all my tools and equipment and consumables based on Maine's "Hull Job" thread on Sailnet and today I did a test run on the new Makita 9722C with the Heavy Duty Rubbing Compound and Finesse-It II on a 2 by 2 square on my hull.

I used to do this by hand and when I did I still had oxidation on the hull and the waxing pad would turn green (my hull color) as a result. Today after I waxed the 2 by 2 square there was NO green color on my waxing pad or the microfiber cloth I used to buff the wax out. Took me less than 10 minutes for the whole exercise including washing the buffer bonnets when done. Amazing.

Here's a photo of the 2 by 2 square and the adjacent oxidized hull. Thirty six year old hull.

Re: Own very own MaineSail is famous

Famous would be an understatement. Saved my bacon a few times!
