Since the 795 is a silicone-based bedding compound, I am not inclined to use it to seal the window frames against the gelcoat. I do like the ease-of-use of the butyl tape. I guess I should call the Catalina Direct folks and ask them why they would use the 4200 vs. butyl tape.

Anyway, thanks for your input, Faster.

Sailing isn't a matter of life and death. It's much more important than that!
