    The best sealants (whatever anyone says) are yacht sealants such as Sekaflex (I think that's how its spelt). Try a chandler, or on line.

    Sikaflex is good for fixing things onto your van such as solar panels and trim panels but is ( in my opinion) far too "permanent" to use on the scuttle. Try a commercial silicone, such as that used for bathrooms etc. That can then be removed at a later date (if necessary )..

    It might be an ideal to go to the Sikaflex web site and ask the question but I have to say there are many commercial products out there today that equal and in some cases better Sikaflex especially price wise:)
