Interesting thing about life and boaters..
Sailors seem to just HATE silicon seal (RTV). Every sailor I know tells me that you can use many things to bed
your stuff but NEVER use silicon seal.
That's fine and dandy...
But in the Hot Rod Jetboat world.. EVERYONE uses ONLY silicon seal to seal the jetpump to its mounting ring and seal that to the hull
. Pour the horse power to them, work and flex the hull
. They will sometimes last 20+ years without leaking.
How can something be so hated by one group when another group just loves it for nearly the same use?
