    Default sealant / caulk

    when i had my boat out last weekend i noticed it was leaking a little and the caulking around the jet looke like it could use replacing. my question is what do you use for this? can you just use like a bathroom caulking or is there something special?

    silicone, not caulk i use whatever silicone matches the pump and transom plates n color

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    use 3M Marine Adheasive Sealant 5200. It's the best stuff I've found and best off its at your local home depot. It is very tough yet flexable to use on your pump and housing. Regular caulking just never seemed to work for me it would always seem to peel away after a trip or two to the lake. This stuff has been on my pump for over a year with still no leaks. Granted it is pretty tough to get off (a little elbow grease and a scraper) if you ever need to get your pump off, If you do it right the first time you wont have any leaks... Hope that helps
    Beer is the answer... but I dont remember the question.
