We will let the pictures do the talking.  We're pretty sure we have the best selection of good used boat gear and equipment in the west?  Tip of the day: I have a little house in Baja.  The painter's putty that keeps the glass in the windows keeps drying out in the 115 degree summer heat.  I have replaced all the painter's putty with 3M 5200 bedding compound.  Use masking tape to outline where you want the 3M to go-gun it in, take your finger and run it around the joint where the glass meets the wood-pull off the masking tape (don't let the 3M dry on the tape) and you'll never have a problem with that window again. 5200 also makes good pipe joint compound.  Goes on easy, seals perfectly and if need be will allow you to break open the joints at a later time. Don't use 5200 on pipe joints that will get very hot.
