Deck sealant

I need to take the deck plate up on my hurricane 590 what do I use to reseal the deck. Is there a video online or a book that would explain how to properly do this.

I was looking at 3m 5200 but it says itís for permanent bonding
Does it really mean permanent or just a pain in the ass to get off. I donít want to permanently glue down my deck plate

Butyl tape...brilliant when something has to be lifted in the future and is prone to creep and movement/stress. We use it all the time for seating/bedding panels/hatches that need to be waterproof nik

Sika or equivalent is the way to go easy to remove if needed it's just a gasket at the end of the day

If you use sikaflex it will be permanently bonded I've taken transom shields out in the past stuck with sika and its pulled the gelcoat off down to the laminations
If its a hatch you may want to remove again you should realy consider a none hardening mastic or semi hardening
If its a location you can get a knife under to cut the sika if you want to be in again then fine but if not use something with less "stick"

Sikaflex works good. They offer different part numbers some are more of a sealant while others have stronger adhesive qualities. 5200 is definitely not for something that you need to be removable in the future.

Iím thinking about the butyl tape with the sealant on top then I can just cut the sealant when needed the butyl tape should keep the sealant from creeping under when applied
