Default Sealant

My uncle gave me a small aluminum boat. Looking at the bottom I noticed there were a couple spots where they'd used sealant in the past.

The sealant is old and I need to replace it. What kind of sealant do I need to use?

Marine JB Weld works pretty good. Maybe check out Gluvit too.

if you wanted to make a project out of it , you could take all of those rivets out and smash some new ones , ad sealant behind it

The JB Weld is good- I have also used the epoxy sticks you melt from Cabelas. They worked also. I have even painted the inside hull of a 1957 Crestliner with that alumaweld paint. It worked somewhat on rivits. I would also find if and where there is a leak and attack it from there.
