WesK, the difference between 5200 and say 4200 is the amount of swear words I say before I get the pieces separated!

I've seen those small tubes HopCar but it is in my memory that they cost about as much as the big cartridge. And I'm not keen on lay'in a "bead" w those tooth paste tubes.

Thanks for the heads up though. Should get a couple of them anyway. Just my luck to get the micro job 75% done and finish the tube and need to get more.

Hi Eric, At my favorite marine store the 1 oz. tube sells for $6.49, the 3 oz. tube sells for $10.79 and the 10 oz. carts sell for $9.80 in white and $14.95 in the other colors.
The little 1 oz. tubes are only available in white.

But I use more SikaFlex than anything else. As far as take-appart-ability goes Dolphinite is the total opposite of 5200. Dolphinite would have been perfect for Jbear's sink.
I've only used Dolphinite on wood boats. Is it effective on fiberglass as well? I suppose it could be. As far as I know 5200 is glue. Sika-flex is better for sealing as it stays flexible.

dhmeissner,
Probably works BETTER on FG as it's basically non-porous and wood would (in dry weather) tend to pull the oil out of the Dolfhinite and dry it up. I took a cleat off the bow of my boat and the sealer was in good condition .. pliable.

We used paint on wood boats and it works at least as well on FG boats.

YES 5200 says on the tube "ADHESIVE" and it should say super adhesive.

In SE Alaska weather SikaFlex lasts 4 or 5 years on our boat when used on teak. Much longer w teak out of the picture.

My favorite line on 5200.
"It's so messy if you order some over the phone it'll get in your hair!"
from one of these boating forums years ago

I think there's some on my keyboard now.

Obviously, your favorite marine store is not West Marine.

Why would anybody glue in a sink?

Caulking in a sink is common practice. It keeps it from moving and keeps water from leaking between the sink and the counter it's installed in.

Using a high strength adhesive caulk would be a mistake.

Wesk, I'd tell you the name of my favorite marine store but forum rules prevent it.

Real men aren't afraid to use 5200.
That should stir it up some!

Even this redneck won't use 5200 on a galley sink. Somehow did manage to get it on the truck stickshift, though.

I admit I wouldn't use it to bed a sink either.

I just removed my galley sink that was installed with 5200. I put a bottle jack under the sink and then heated the rim of the SS sink with a heat gun. It worked OK and took about 15 min.

Snork. A bottle jack to take out a sink. Ever heard of plumber's putty? God help me.
