So after thinking of using plain roofing tar and felt to join my stem pieces together, the suggestion of 3M 5200 came up. I can get it at a local hardware store but a little more research amongst your fine forum posts of the past and I am beginning to doubt that as well..... What is suggested in a traditionally built stem? Dolphinite seems unavailable in Canada, 5200 is too permanent and roofing tar seems to me that it will be a sloppy mess. Bob talks of plumbers putty at $3 a tube. Vulcanite I think he recommended. Is that where I should be looking at this point? Thanks guys,
