I’m about to re-install my swim platform brackets. Does anyone have a favorite silicone brand they can recommend?

Marine sealant (http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SiteSearchView?catalogId=10001&Ntx=mode%2Bmatchallpartial&keyword=sealant&Ntt=sealant&N=0&y=0&x=0&storeId=10001&Ntk=All_2&ddkey=SiteSearch). 3M has some excellent products. Most used is the Marine Grade Silicone Sealant (http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/producte/10001/-1/10001/250932/0/0/sealant/All_2/mode+matchallpartial/0/0), but I'll tell ya, the 3M 5200 Polyurethane Adhesive/Sealant (http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/producte/10001/-1/10001/250928/0/0/sealant/All_2/mode+matchallpartial/0/0) is some big-time durable stuff. Get the Fast Cure version, otherwise it takes about a week for the other stuff to cure

The old version of The Swimsuit Thread was yanked on the advice of MasterCraft's attorneys due to the potential for silicone poisening.

I used the 3M stuff (available at WalMart) when I replaced my speedo pickup. This is what skidim recommends for that.

I thought silicon only came in a bag. Do you mean it comes in a tube too!!!!

... but is still viewable by the mods (though some of the good pictures are no longer there.

I will miss that privilege if they ever get around to disconnecting my buttons.

Yes...I understand. It's difficult to find pictures of naked or nearly-naked women on the internet.

The 5200 Fast Cure is the stuff to go with, just be sure to have something to clean up with, like lacquer thinner or mineral spirits.... stuff can get messy!

That was always my suggestion when it came to that thread, but it didn't seem to matter. ;)

The 3M 5200 is great stuff. But, I was told not to use it on anything where you may have to remove it in the future. That stuff sticks! I used it to seal the holes in my transom (in my non-MC boat) where I mounted my transducer and where I passed the transducer cabling through the transom.
