    It's a marine sealant that is like silicone on steroids. It sticks to almost anything and is tough as heck once it cures. It stays a little resiliant so you wouldnt want to bem

    Considering how anti-modern and anti-technology you are and Pelican cases are a relatively modern product, you should be carrying your stuff around in an antique leather bag.

    I always envisioned a carpetbag.

    It would be an improvement - don't really care for leather unless a chick is wearing it! :whip2:

    Nope never heard of it.

    If you've ever owned a saltwater boat, you've probably used it. It stays flexible but is way stronger and tougher than any other sealant in existence. You only use it on things that you want to be permanent because the only way to get it back apart is to cut it. You're not going to chisel it apart with a putty knife like you can with silicone. It's quite a bit more expensive than other sealants but worth it if you really need strength. And snake, it would work well on your boats leaks. I've only seen it in black or white and they make a fast curing formula now. you can get a small tube up to a caulk gun sized tube.

    That should work Zorba. Next time post pictures of the problem.

    A little overkill, but, functional.

    Too late now but

    I thought about using KO seals - but figured this was easier to make airtight. Besides, the diamond plate makes it look badass!
