I was also going to suggest butyl tape (I would probably choose butyl 
caulk on the boat but have used the tape with good success on metal 
windows in fiberglass campers).  On campers one does put the tape on 
the back of the window frame prior to inserting it into the fiberglass 

The PolyShim sounds interesting.  Thanks for the info on that.

I would vote for something besides silicone, but then I consider it the 
Agent of the Devil ;)
