butyl tape

I am in the process of refitting the hinged lid of the propane locker that a PO had built into the cockpit seat. I want to seal the hinges to prevent water from getting into the screw holes (I have already overdrilled the holes, filled with epoxy and redrilled, but I still want to keep out unnecessary water).

I had seen butyl tape recommended for this purpose on a forum someplace, but I have not been able to find it on West Marine's or Jamestown Distributors' web sites.

Does anyone know where I can buy it? Does it have another name?

Or is there another product which is even better?
