I've had an FA-50 AIS transceiver in our EB47 for a while. It works quite well. I've been able to see everything else nearby if they're squawking AIS. All was well, right?

As someone that's also too large for tight spaces, you have my sympathies.

I'd wonder if the screw was corroded into the base? Or if it was inserted with red loctite (the 5200 equivalent of...

Going to take a hard pass on chinese-made 'food grade' silicone for anything involving repeated heating. Better to stick with an all-metal unit to avoid anything leeching out of the materials.
