Shower caulk question

The old caulk was between wall and teak, between the 2 teak trim pieces and between teak and shower pan.
(Itís been removed, by hand, light sanding, and light rub with acetone)
Iím ready to re-seal but wondering if Life Caulk or another non silicone sealant would be better? I donít want 5200 in case there is a leak and I have to remove it later on. Suggestions?

The pan seems like itís a textured plastic and the walls are regular interior all original.

whatever you do, don't use GE caulk.

I would use Sike 291 for that. To do it properly use their primer on the wood and it will stick very well. I did some teak toe rail to the fiberglass deck about 3 years ago and it is still perfect.

We have used Phenoseal in our Flooring/Tile business for three generations. I have used in in many applications on the boat and think this is an ideal application.

+1 Sikaflex ... A little better than the 3M products (does not yellow as much with age) and half the price.

I used to use 3M caulks but have been way more satisfied with Sika once I tried them.
