DO NOT USE 101 ON PLASTIC!

Polysulphides do bad things to plastic. Use either BoatLife LifeSeal (my preference) or butyl caulk

t22 is right on. The J/30 is a fantastic boat, though, and the right one can be huge bang for the buck. I race and cruise mine.

I'll echo here - the Porter Cable 97355/97366 are, without doubt, the best sander for the dollar. I have two and they're fantastic.

I like the milk jug idea. I'll try that next time I change the oil.

Unless you work in a boat yard and know exactly what you're doing, 3M 5200 should never, ever be used on your boat. Never.
