The T-38 is an awesome boat Chris and you have chosen well. I was 8.5 miles out in mine last Saturday off Worthing and Littlehampton in quite a big swell initially and felt as safe as houses.

It's a good idea to put marine sealant in the holes that you drill to seal your transom too!!

I will.
I was trying to find if there is a difference between marine sealant and regular sealant. From what I can tell it is the addition of the word “marine” and a multiplication of the price tag.
Not a complete idiot - some parts are missing.

Unfortunately that’s a poor guide 😂
Different sealants are available depending on the requirements of the sealant.
Above deck, below deck, flexibility, chemical/uv/weather protection etc.

Obviously chemical production content comes into it, certain sealants will stick line sh!t but aren’t waterproof as such, others are very waterproof but not very good at adhesion.
You need to buy the correct grade of sealant that’s suits the job you’re doing.
Whether that be a caulk or silicone based product.
Some will say silicone must never be used around boats, that’s an out dated comment as everything in life moves on. New chemicals, processes and such creates new uses.
Buy the correct product for the job in hand is my opinion.

Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:

This is a handy size and does the job for your transom Chris.
