  • Caulk

    I have a '97 Mako 191. Some of the caulk in the seams is hard and cracked. What do you recommend for replacement?

    Depends which seams you want to seal (above or below the water line?) and if you want to get into those seams again. For a fairly perminate seal use 5200. If you will need to open it up again, marine silicone is OK. Read the labels and follow the directions. 5200 is messy and takes 7 days to completely cure unless you get the fast curing 5200 which takes if, I remember correctly, about 2 days. They say it's the same seal and bond but usually a slower cure means a harder better seal so I don't know if I should believe the labels on that one. Why would they continue to sell the regular 5200??

    Hope this helps -
