Thanks Carl. My guess, spray on plastic not rubber (like rubber boots). The marketing makes me skeptical. If you search you get lots of bogus testimonials. The Amazon discussion is interesting.
Amazon.com: Customer Discussions: flex seal

Apparently at one time they used a screen door in the boat rather than plexiglass with holes. Consumer Reports tried it.

If you are going to try it, buy it in a store, not online or over the phone. You don't want these folks to have your credit card number Raz

I bought a can of "clear" today just to
see what it's like. I'll have to find a
project to try it out. [NOT my Snoozy, lol]

OK I'll admit to using it, the black stuff, and got it at Lowes. I had a very minor water leak around the lower door hinge on our Uhaul. Attempts to seal it on the outside were unsuccessful and I barely could get at the inside because of the inner shell. Finally out of desperation I sprayed some around inside the outer shell where the hinge attaches and stopped the leak. I should have removed the hinge, but I've found some things are best left untouched, and that looked like the case here.

OMG, OMG, OMG. Please let stickies try it first. We want to SAVE all molded towable owners from 'el removing stuff that is a temporary fix (and not create a permanent problem).

I agree. Just need to fix it right or have it fixed right
to begin with. Money saved and satisfaction much greater.

Sounds like it worked.

Another tool in the arsenal, at least for those of us not wedded to dawn-of-time technologies.

I used the Flex Seal this weekend, but not on the scamp. I used in to repair the bottom of a 1940s metal cooler that had some spots rusted through the outter layer. It worked well. It sealed it completely and then accepted the Rustoleum primer and top coat. I'm sure it will last longer than I do.
However, I won't be using it for the rivets. The spray foams up and would be hard to control over just the rivet without fear of drips and blobs. It dries to a clear milky color. I think it may come in a brush on product too, which may be easier to control the product in a small area like I have.

They now have a newer product FlexCalk advertising on TV and they show it sealing a window on a camper.
