    Default What kind of caulk at the tramsome

    My boats leaking around the aluminum plate clamshell and the pump housing at the transom, the stuff is kind of a soft pliable white caulking. I'd like to dig it out and replace it what do you guys suggest?

    I was going to say looks like you really like silicone ! Someone else mentioned boat life caulk, kinda rubberized stuff. He said he thought that might be what's actually on there

    Default 3m marine grade

    3m brand, marine grade silicone, #4200 is the longest lasting, most durable yet removable product out there for that application. The #5200 is considered "permanent" and is an absolute m-f'r to remove. I've seen both available at home depot in the paint section.
