I might add that on a hot summer day butyl tape can be brutal to work with because it stretches so easy. As said above do not use the black butyl tape as it will stain your boat.

So butyl tape for deck hardware, tracks, chain plates, cleats, clutches etc.
What would you not use it for.

Hull, deck is 5200, you want to super glue effect right.
What about aluminum framed port lights?
Plastic frame less port lights?
For port lights, I think butyl tape is perfect as it forms a nice flexible gasket. I see no difference if the frame is metal or plastic as far as butyl tape is concerned.
