My boat has a transom mounted rudder with pintles and gudgeons. I will be replacing the gudgeons this winter due to some wear-induced damage on one of them. I looks like the OEM installation actually used a rubber or vinyl gasket material.
For my replacement, would butyl tape be an appropriate sealant, or should I use a curing sealant. If so, what type of sealant would you recommend?
