          Comments about Life Calk Sealant:

          Bought the White because my fiberglass is bright white. Within a month, it has turned an ugly dark yellow. Now I need to dab some paint on it to cover up the yellow. This product would be better if white meant white!

            Comments about Life Calk Sealant:

            I have used this product to seal my toe rail where it meets the deck. It does adhere well but when exposed to sunlight it lasts only one year if you are lucky.

                  I used this caulk on a a major refit of a fiberglass boat. I caulked fiberglas to fiberglas joints above the waterline. They leaked within a year. I'm currently removing all of this caulk so I can redo it. I'm not a happy camper. Not recommended!
