I use some sika 291 the last mont to caulk a porthole in a lagoon 44, the 291 is easy to work and the 292 is very similar to 5200 also there is a fast dry cure version of sika 291 if i remember. Cheers.

My recollection is the products are a little less costly? I used some of their water based caulk for a temporary bond of a piece of hardware and really liked the way it set up. The tube came from a local hardware store and cost $3.00. Considering that the local marine theives are getting upwards of $15.00 for the 3m stuff, I am looking for a better way. I remember 20years ago I had a friend who spoke very highly about the Sika line.

Used Sika 226 cleaner, 209n primer and 295uv adhesive to
replace forward hatch lense in 2006...good products...had to
clean and prep frame (lense also) extremely well and was rewarded with a long lasting, professional looking install.
Would use again...that's why I kept the product numbers
in my maintenance notebook! Hugo
