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

Pat and Ian, that might be a workable idea, but it would be a lot of work. Getting the masking tape right to paint the edges (to cover the sealant) was a huge job, and this would be the same again.
James, both of your ideas seem like much less work. I had not considered using longer screws. That still leaves the problem of getting the butyl tape into position, and it's very frustrating to cut... so I think perhaps I'll go the silicone route. I also was not aware silicone could be easily wiped off acrylic. I thought I would have to use a solvent (like acetone) which would attack it. I'm surprised mineral spirits is safe; I usually consider that harsher than acetone.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a silicone?
