I still prefer butyl tape though - one roll will last a lifetime.


Mostly because I can't find it.

Off topic . .

Where I take note of places I put things then no issue on finding again but the danger is when I put something down without taking any particular attention and or put something in a really “sensible” location. - well it was sensible at the time - then I am in trouble. Yes the double side tape I can find it :-)

Now as for the emergency food stores in the boat . . . . hmmm . . .

Butyl mastic. Waterproof, lasts forever and has a consistency like Blu Tack, so you can always take it apart in years to come

Selleys do a butyl mastic in a caulking tube. I've used fro years on all sortsa stuff, most recently on our caravan. Skins over but always softish. Same or different?
