Dolfinite is a flexible, semi paste bedding compound. Its slow oxidizing waterproof formula makes it ideal for bedding in joints in keels, stem, sternpot, transom, battens and other hull components. Use it to bed deck fittings, moldings, and trim around deck houses.
Use Dolfinite on wood, metal, or fiberglass wherever waterproof seals are required. It can applied by hand, pressure gun, or putty knife. Thinning is not normally required. Once the compound has firmly skinned over, you can even paint over it.
It can also be used as a double planking compound in the construction of double planked hulls where canvas is not used. Apply a liberal coat with a serrated trowel on the inner layer before laying up the outer planking.

The can was badly dented, but the compound didn't leak out of it.

Refinished the bowsprit and pulpit this summer (two weeks of work that I don't want to do again) and decided to use Dolfinite bedding compound, after consulting with JD customer service... I used a putty knife to apply, which was super easy! I was a little worried about the clean up, after reading some of the reviews, but a little mineral spirits and a couple rolls of paper towels did the trick! I used the natural color, which transitions from the teak much better than the previous white butyl rubber.

Bought this because the rudder that I was refinishing had the bolts bedded in this and it was easy to remove because it was still soft. after I don't know how many years.

Somewhat messy for setting smaller parts on boat, but cleans up fairly easily.

Material stays flexible and waterproof but can leave stains that are difficult to remove from areas it is spilled on or squeezes out to. Taping adjacent areas is essential to a good clean job that leaves the sealing compound only where you want it - under the deck hardware you are bedding. If you are tired of deck hardware that wicks or traps moisture under it, causing the usual rot and freeze crack headaches, this is the stuff to use. But be sure to keep plenty of acetone and paper towels on hand for cleanup - it's very sticky and messy.

I use this to bed stem bands and keels on wood canvas canoes. It is messy, and sticky, but that's a good thing for a bedding compound. I dip screws in it to seal the threads from water intrusion. Easily faired with a putty knife or your finger. Great stuff, last for years, never seems to get hard and crumple. Can be painted in a few hours after it skins over.

This is far better than adhesive caulks if you may want to remove something later.
