I'm sure you'll do OK with butyl tape.. just try not to squeeze it all out as you tighten the window into place.

FWIW I do know firsthand that DC 795 cleans up easily if you ever need to redo that seal and it works just fine against gelcoat. Again it's important to retain some 'gasket thickness' when done.
