mitiempo The butyl or the Sikaflex are good choices, but leave the 5200 alone as it is too strong of an adhesive.

Sealing a motor mount

Hello Everyone, I have a tanzer 22 and need to change out the motor mount. I have the old mount off and now need to install the new one. I have read many threads about sealant and adhesive. I do not think that adhesive is most important since there are 4 strong bolts, so I am thinking of using a sealant with some adhesive properties. I could only find three things here in Red Deer, Alberta: 3M 5200, Sikoflex 291, and Butyl Tape. Should I use any of these or should I order something from the web? I was really considering the butyl tape, is it suited for this purpose?
