TotalBoat Seal is a fast-curing elastomeric marine sealant that adheres tenaciously to fiberglass, wood, metal, glass, Starboard & vinyl. It creates a highly elastic waterproof seal ideal for bedding hardware, windshields, and portholes, as well as flush & overlapping joints. Once cured, Seal is paintable and sandable.
Seal is highly UV stable and will not sag on vertical surfaces. It boasts superior properties over most leading sealants including strength, adhesion, elongation, and shelf life. For use above and below the waterline. Do not use on wood deck seams.
Available in White only. Choose from a 3 oz. tube, 10 oz. cartridge, or 6-pack of 10 oz. cartridges. Cartridges fit standard 290ml caulk guns.
Important: TotalBoat Seal is designed for bedding and sealing, and does not have the strength properties of bonding adhesives.

i will be replacing my winshield on my boat with lexan windows in wood frames with a wood bead at the outside perimiter. I would like to use this product as bedding/sealant material.I know that at some point I will have to remove the excess sealant from the lexan. Is this product compatible with lexan? What and how should I remove the excess w/o hurting the lexan? Thank you in advance.
You can't use solvents on lexan so your best bet would be to mask the edges.
will white total seal stick to a varnished plywood floor for waterproofing above waterline?
Yes, be sure to clean and sand with 220 grit first.

Can this be used for a teak to teak or a teak to gel oat seal? What type of prep need for teak? Assume unsealed and unvarnished teak the best? The reason I ask because on the package it says not for use on teak deck seams. Thanks
It can be used as a sealer, just be sure to clean well with acetone first.

Is this as good as 5200 fir below the water line thru hull's?
5200 setup up hard. This sealer stays flexable when cured. Haven't had any problems above the water line. Have used it below water line and it didn't seem to affect it one way or the other. Think' silicon sealer a little more flexable'. Be used it for everything.
AS far as I know, the total boat seal is holding up. I applied 5 tubes on my deck replacement. I certainly hope it is as good as 3m 5200.
No I would still use 5200 below the waterline. I like the Total Boat sealant for hatch mounting and general caulking outside as it doesn't yellow like 5200 and is much easier to work with and remove parts when needed.Brett S/V Seismic Wave
Hello - Can this product be used as a light adhesive? I'm mounting some gear hammocks inside my boat and want something that has adhesive properties, but can be removed later, if I decide to move things around.Thanks in advance!
Hi Michelle, I think this product would work, it's pretty tenacious after it dries. A word of warning it can be messy, I would tape around the area and be diligent. Read the label it takes a day or so for complete cure. I would take a couple of those little silicone bumpers (like for the back of cabinet doors)cut them if you need to make them smaller and put them between the parts that you are gluing at act as space to make sure you have enough caulk between the parts. it keeps the caulk from squishing out... Good luck,
This is for gluing plastics and such - there are better stuff - like 4200 - not the 5200 too strong.
Very versatile product. I have not used it for that purpose.Seems like you might have a problem with clamping until setup.
what is the prep for using as a seal on fiberglass. There is old caulk in the joint. After I dig it out will Acetone be a good choice?
Use a scrapper or knive blade to remove the old caulk. Any number of solvents may work to remove caulk residue. Can't say for sure not know the typed of caulk.
Thanks for your feedback
Is this good for deck joints on fiberglass or is silicone better?
This is a good product on fiberglass deck joints. Do not use silicone, it will fail.
Can this be used to bed lexan port lights?
Use Lexel Sealant for Lexan. Brand name: LEXEL
What type of sealant is this? Polyurathane, polysulfide, Polyether, silicone, something else? It should specify in the product description since no product is appropriate for all situations or all substrates.
Elastomer refers to the group of rubber like polymers. Polysulfide is an elastomer but all elastomers are not polysulfides. Look for the registered trade name Thiokol.
This is an Elastomeric (Synthetic Rubber), not a Polyurathane, polysulfide, Polyether or Silicone.
anyone use this product to seal starboard? Does it work?All the literature I saw about starboard is that no common adhesives stick to it.
I used this product to attach neoprene rubber to the bottom of my new Moeller fuel tanks. I hear that not much will make a bond with starboard.
Thanks Dennis, I asked the question because the description says it adheres to starboard. I guess that's not accurate.
Yes I have used if to seal starboard - it will stick only as a sealant not as an adhesive. And it can make a compression seal between two pieces screwed together. I also use dolphonite to install starboard as a backing plate for mefal hardware. I use the nonskid starboard to make backing plates. Use 1/2" starboard with the nonskid facing the surface which gives the sealant or the dolphonite a place to reside between the surfaces when the antenna mount of horn or whatever is tightened down.I only use the sealant on fiberglass boats or on Triumph extruded plastic type boats and dolphonite on wood painted boats. Dolphonite won't rip the painted surface if the hardware and starboard plate are removed someday.
probably would not use again
takes a long time to cure if the sealant is not exposed to air, when bedding and sealing screws after two weeks it is still not cured.
Same product, less waist.
Originally I used this product to seal window frames on my house, then I used it when installing deck hardware on my sailboat. It does an excellent job of beding the hardware and assuring no water intrusion into the deck core. My most recent order was for the smaller tubes, so I have much less wastage when there is several months between usage.
I have been using life caulk and life seal products for years, my most recent project was changing multiple through hulls below the water line,The price of boat life has left me looking for an alternative,so I read the reviews on the total boat sealant and gave it a shot.As with my other experiences with this brand I was not disappointed, the product behaved just as life seal,cleaned up easily and did what it was applied To do..If i was to make one comment and by no means negative but i find total boat as with life seal skims very quickly,still cleans up well but you got no time to dilly dally if you want a really clean edge without bathing in a solvent...overall i will be using this product moving foward,,cant beat the price and so far the performance is what i was hoping for...

nice product at a good price.
After deck repainting all deck hardware was rebedded with the Total Seal.
Great product - seals very nicely
I have used this product in a bunch of locations on my Pearson 26. I used it for fixing the leaks in the windows, on the keel-hull joint and when mounting hardware. Before my windows leaked like no tomorrow. I removed them and used SEAL before putting them back in. No more leaks!
Great for sealing things
This is exactly what I wanted to seal up things on the top of my Class A motorhome. Very sticky and very flexible
I have bought it again
I like the product in that it applies very smoothly. It takes a while to cure. I don't have any way to compare it to 5200 or 4200 or boat life though. It's a bargain on a price basis if it works and lasts as well as boatlife.
This is a quality durable sealer
I sealed two access ports In a 470
Very misleading. Picture is wrong for the default size.
What arrived was a squeeze tube. What is pictured is a cartridge for a caulking gun. Bait and switch.
Love this sealer!
I have used many tubes off SEAL and will keep using all over the boat and in the bathroom at home! Great stuff!
