    It looks like toilet bowl wax.  I have some plugs in varying sizes including ones that contour to abnormal holes, but it looks like i'll need some toilet bowl wax on board as well.

    Having a container or that cant hurt. Looks like it worth having it on board...

    I agree CW, I wonder if toilet bowl wax would be cheaper.  Either way, looks good to have onboard.

    Looks similar but I think the SA may be a bit more dense than a wax bowl ring. Almost as thick as plumbers putty for sink drains etc. wth it's only $7 at WM anyway. Either way It's a great idea and something I'll definately add. Thanks Aero.

    Hey guys why take a chance of having toilet bowl was and maybe it wont work?? If your taking on a lot of water is saving maybe $5 really worth it?

    If you want to see a picture of this item go to the Forum Search and enter Toms - Safety Items and the post Good Items To Have On Board will appear from my posting of December 2015. or enter Good Items To Have On Board.

    BTW...The USCG approves "Stay Afloat" it and carries it. Unlike toilet bowl wax it is designed to stick to an already wet surface and will remain firm. I gave the unopened container of it to the new owners of my 360. I purchased it at West marine but many marine stores carry it. In the picture was also specialized tape that was super high heat resistant, waterproof and could hold many hundreds of volts. All great items to have on board.

    Cheers, MT

    I don't think toilet bowl cleaner would come close to what that stuff does...I'm sure it may even harden some when et perhaps to do what they show it can do. Another thing a guy at work told me about that also should be on this list is a tape that has some sort of resin in it that for sure gets hard when wet, could wrap a hose with a hole in it....no childish comments, aw heck, go ahead

    Ras, the tape that I mentioned "Rescue Tape" is a multi purpose safety tape.
