Trillium belly band sealant, quick question

Hi, I want to add an itty bitty bead of sealant around the belly band on our 1980 Trillium. Last year I used Shasco Big Stretch on the advice of someone somewhere. Unfortunately, it gathers dirt like a Hoover. Looks terrible. I'm now removing it with mineral spirits and brushes. On deck is 3M marine adhesive sealant. Can anyone vouch for this or recommend a non-silicone caulk to use? Thanks in advance. Colleen in Seattle

Belly Band Sealant

I haven't done my belly band yet, but what I've used everywhere else - windows and through-hull fittings is: Pro-Flex. A tube for a caulking gun and it comes in white, black or beige. Pro-Flex seems to be what everyone around here (Pacific NW) uses. It works and stays flexible. Follow the instructions. Just don't use any silicone-type material !!

Good luck with your leak fix.

Much obliged! I'll give it a try.

Polyurethane caulk is another good choice. You can purchase it at Home Depot and Lowes.

Thank you. Have ordered and will run some "test beads." I'm the world's worst beader--hoping some masking tape saves me.
