    Jerry, I haved used 3M 5200 for the pump area before and I made a huge mess out of it. The problem is that it dries up too quickly and gets really difficult once everything is bolted on to take off the extra silicon pushed out.

    is it because of the climate I am in? or am I too slow bolting things up?

    Clean off with "white spirits" and a good rag, I heard.

    Are you using the fast dry stuff?

    You are using the quick cure.

    You want the slow cure regular 3M 5200. It takes 5-7 days to cure properly.

    The loc tite is epoxy i used to fill in the hollow space in my transom plate.

    I used 3m 5200 slow cure to seal the transom plate to the hull.

    Hmmm, I will need to have a look at mine next time I'm in there doing prop work which may be pretty soon.

    What about alignment of the transom plate when you go to bolt it back on the ski. Is it just a simple as that or does it requiere some sort of special alignment?
