CT1 Sealent/adhesive

Was recommended to use CT1 instead of Sikaflex yesterday by a very knowledgeable bloke. Looks really good stuff and I'm going to keep some on the RIB for emergency repairs. Being able to do a get-me-home fix under the water line is priceless.
He's been using it on boats for a bit now and swears by it. Although he says it's made by magic

interesting, how quick does it go off? I personally a fan of sikaflex, but obviously theres a time factor there with temp/humidity conditions

Apparently it seals straight away, watch the video's on the site and as far as they guy new the shelf life is very long.

Hi i bought a tube of Plumbers gold last weekend to use instead of sikaflex.
Its an adhesive and again works / cures under water.
i will use it for sealing bits and bobs around console etc (not structural or load bearing)
Only cost 5 so that will do me

RIBase
I've used CT1 in freshwater to seal leaks. It's very sticky and it works. Wouldn't be a long term fix, obviously...
