Muffler silencer to hose sealant

just had to repair a crack in the aft end of the fibreglass muffler / silencer and when i reassemble I wondered what sealant to use to ensure watertightness as this the the wet part when the engine is not running obviously something that is not going to be a problem if the joint ever needs dissembling again

now repaired

Use Never Seize on the hose connection. Not as a sealant per se' but it will come off much easier next time. Certainly not mandatory to use....

And as was stated - two clamps...
