Very interesting information, at present I don't have any projects that require the counter sinking method he mentioned but the butyl tape method of bedding is familiar to me. I do plan on using butyl tape for a up coming window replacement job. I will be checking out the tape he referenced.
Thanks "knowledge is power".

I've seen that before and enjoyed reading it again. That guy really knows what he's doing.

Thanks for posting it.

Here is the same write-up laid out far better than that copy/paste to a forum format:

I have a center tilt out window replacement ordered and wanted to try the Bed-It butyl tape because it really sounds like a great product. I contacted Compass Marine and was able to order a single roll of 50' to seal my new window and try it out. Thought I would pass that on as others might not need two or more 50' rolls, of course paying the same shipping cost for two if you can use it is the best deal.
