What is the best type sealant to use for a thru-hull?
5200? 5200 fast cure? Something else?

What whaler? Where are you mounting the the through-hull?
(Almost all whalers don't have a place to put a through-hull)

My Montauk indeed uses a transom mount.

This is for my "other" boat.

Just trying to tap into what I know is a knowledgeable resource.

Most all larger Whalers have a designated spot for a thru-hull, see the wood locating diagram for your model/year on the Whaler site.

Anything underwater that's meant to be permanent I use 5200.

And for sealing deck joints, Boatlife Polysulfide caulk.
