I put Loc Tite on my tip. The blue Loc Tite can be removed with a touch of force.
The red is permanent - do not use that if you ever what to get the tip off again.
Don't smack me but the blue comes in a red tube - no idea why.
Lowes / Home Depot sell it - roughly $6.00 for a tube. You only need a few drops on the male threads.
Be careful cutting the tube tip - if you squeeze it as you cut - makes a mess.
It sets up in about 2 hours.
Great for a lot of other uses on a boat.
What could be more mundane than dying of old age or of natural causes when there is death by misadventure to be pursued ? Skip
