What is the best caulking?

I need to caulk around the top of my belly band. Ive read that silicone is not a good option. Any suggestions? Thanks, Sonny

Why are you caulking the belly band?

I removed the band and filled the seam with flexible sealant. It was leaking bad. Now I'm putting the band back on and I want to seal along the top edge of it. Just to be sure.

Got it. So, you're talking the metal band, not the vinyl insert.
Have a read of this thread on the Escape forum. Discusses caulks and uses.

If you want a permanent seal that will resist UV, use "3M - #5200" marine caulk.
