Hi Giovanni. On SM 243 the portlights were sealed with a LOT of
clear silicone caulk. That made removing the wooden panels inside
very difficult. If you use anything stronger than that you will
never get the panels off without destroying them.

I second Craig's suggestion. Plus, if it fails in less than
50 years Craig will come and personally fix it for you. ;)
3M 5200 is known as "The Devil's Glue" and should really only
be used on things that you never, ever, want to take apart
again. Offhand, I can't think of a single place on my SM that
I would use it in place of something that is almost as strong
but way more removable like 3M 4200.
Here's a pretty good article on marine adhesives from
