Thanks for your input, John. I called Catalina Direct and they could think of no technical reason for not using butyl tape...a matter of personal preference, really. I'm going to use the butyl tape. I find it easier to work with, and if I have to re-do any of the windows, I find the butyl tape easy enough to remove and reapply. Thanks again.

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