  1. 3M Marine 5200

    Well the ol’ girl has bit the dust.
    I’m going to replace the green box with a Eagle 480 or a 320.
    Looks like I’ll be drilling a few holes in the Lone Star/ aluminum boat.
    Is 3M 5200 about as a good a sealant as I can get or is there something better?
  2. I would say you got your moneys worth outta that one.LOL....

    They say it is wrong to worship false idols, but 5200 is pretty close to God in a tube.:) Love that stuff. Had a pretty cool old 24' Lonestar I regret selling to this day. Had more than a few patches holding out the lake with 5200.

    Yep 5200 Is the best For things you want but down for good. GREAT PRODUCT.
  4. it's the only way to go.

    but it earned it's nickname "52-Everywhere". Be sure to have some solvent on a rag close by. It's amazing how one little dab on your finger tip ends up all over the place.

    i agree that 5200 is all you need for marine sealant, adhesive. just make sure when you put it there, its where you want it to stay.
  6. Thanks for the info. Thought maybe 5200 was the way to go. Just not sure, never used it before.

    Was at Wall World and picked up 3-3oz tubes of 5200@ $1.50 each. A life time supply, I hope. Wall-Mart was getting rid of their marine supplies.
