Cool, thanks! That's going to get done this weekend

Hit the RV store yesterday, 1" wide x 20 feet for $8.00 Canadian. What is that these days, about buck and a half American?

jarcher I ordered some from the link MaineSail posted, and it is on its way!

mitiempo And then you cut the extra that has squeezed out with a razor and you're finished. It's the easiest bedding clean-up I've ever done.

arf145 I lay strips right next to each other and then give them a little rub to join them. When you bolt down the stanchion you are going to get a whole bunch of it back when it oozes out all around. Not hard to imagine at that point that it has filled in little gaps and irregularities pretty well. Depending on the temp when this is all done, you might see some more squished out next time you get back to the boat too.

Yes and when you compress it with the bolts the strips become one big mass..

mitiempo You can cut it to the right size with a sharp blade or if it is for a small area you can form it and roll it in your fingers like plasticene as I did under my winches (so it was just around the bolts in that case to keep the drain slots free of sealant).

jackytdunaway I had Grainger order me a roll of the 3" wide x 20' long but when i got it today one side had a cover on it that would not come off. I can find narrower but how do you use it in a large area like under a stanchion.
