Best quality "tape" comes from a vendor name of "Mainesail" and he posts some of the most useful advice that you will find on any sailing site around the 'net.

Butyl sealing

It appears there is a strong consensus that butyl tape is currently the preferred method of sealing deck hardware.

I was recently at one of my favourite discount/clearance stores and noticed butyl in caulking tubes.

Is this the same stuff, just in a tube, or is it like silicone - a myriad of variations?
