This has been a previous discussion, which you might review. I have been interested in this also, and as far as I know we have yet to conclusively determine the product Whaler actually used. The Dow Corning almond color silicone caulking is close match, but not what they actually used.

Just to clarify a couple of things:
--were are talking about [I think] the sealant used in the cockpit to seal the various mechanically fastened cover plates that form the floor of the deck;
--the "silicon" content of this material is unknown; it may be silicon based, it may not.

Yes Jim that is what I am talking about.I would like to replace with the origanal product,But if it is not available I would like to match the color.If water is allowed to enter these seems were does it end up??Does it saturate foam core?? Thanks John

I believe Whaler did the original with 100% pure clear silicone. I did the complete job on my outrage last summer and it came out just like the original. West marine has a nice tool(red) to get the old out and fill in the new. Search the archives. I don't think the water gets trapped, it works its way to the bildge.

Had to use this in the past.
