Permatex RTV has its place inside the engine (intake manifold gaskets, etc), but not on the hull.

Seriously, below the waterline? Thats just a bad idea. You get a leak there and your boat can sink. A marine sealant meant for underwater gear would be the proper thing to use.
Ok TRBenj...your MC-OCD just got a merit increase...

I would only use RTV on those exhaust screws and flanges - okay and maybe for the mature ladies on the pitot screws. Anything else would get a polyurethane or or poly sulfide...

Cool...this is almost like and oil discussion...
