Thanks to Jedi for the marketing materials. Anything with silicone for this application makes me nervous due to the negative aspects of silicone as to future removal/reapplication/whatever-later, so I'd love to get a techie on the phone and press the matter...
I had a nice chat with a rep who called me today. Boat Life Caulk will work; best if you use their cleaners and a primer, too, though. He claimed that if I liked 101 I'd love theirs, as it's like it but better in formulation.

I still think I'm going to use the TDS...
