Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sealant for dodger windows?

If you want to use the butyl tape, just get some longer screws, pins or even some drill bits that fit the holes in your window panels. Next locate a few corner holes in your frame. Insert two long screws pins or whatever you are using into the matching holes in your new plexiglass and hold the new panel an inch or two above your window frame. You can now work the long screws or pins into the holes you exposed in the frame and at that point lower the plexiglass into perfect position on the first try. From that point just install several of your permanent screws and remove the temporary long locating screws or pins. If you still have concerns, do a dry run without the butyl. You will need some extra hands. And no worries cleaning most silicones off of acrylic. You can pretty much remove it with a clean rag. Mineral spirits or paint thinner is safe for the acrylic if needed. Don't use anything harsh like acetone. I will let someone else recommend the sealant. I will be using the Dow Corning 3145 Gray on mine.
