      Yep, that's it. Didn't know it was available in other colors-- thanks.

      <P>Following a tip on this list, I last year rebedded a leaking chainplate
      <BR>with Dolphinite bedding compound as an experiment.
      <BR><BR>It's
      different from the usual polysulfides, such as Lifecaulk, that <BR>I've
      used
      over the years for bedding and sealing deck hardware. To <BR>begin
      with,
      it's a light brown, so if that puts you off, don't use it. <BR>But it is
      extremely sticky, clings tenaciously to steel and FRP, and <BR>remains
      soft
      and totally flexible, a great thing in this particular <BR>application
      where
      there's constant flex and motion as the shrouds <BR>take up tension
      and then
      relax, even at the mooring. It worked <BR>very well-- the former leak
      source
      remained bone dry-- and I plan <BR>to rebed the remaining chainplates
      using
      it. Because of the trim <BR>plates at the shroud bases, the color is not
      an
      issue for me. Not <BR>much shows through.<BR><BR>There's a fella at
      my yard
      who years ago stopped using bedding <BR>compound and switched to
      using 1/8"
      neoprene rubber. It's a <BR>labor-intensive technique, obviously, since
      it
      involves cutting the <BR>rubber to shape, but it sure eliminates the
      problem
      of polysulfide <BR>finding its way all over you, your clothes, your boat,
      your <BR>neighbor's boat, &c. It also makes removal easier and less
      messy <BR>when it comes time to rebed. I believe the only time I saw
      him
      <BR>use a sealant, apart from putting a bit of goop on machine screw
      <BR>threads, was when he used 3M 5200 to install a below-water
      <BR>transducer. <BR><BR>FYI.<BR><BR>Carter Brey<BR>S28 MkII
