Caulk. Don't use 3M5200 it's too strong. I used 4200. It may be too strong also. But, that is what I used.

Svenole,

I used Sikaflex Lifecaulk and ran beads down each side of the strip so I have a little bead of push-out.

I think it is Taco's number S11-450 for the solid 1/2". SS type 304. They make many widths. I Picked up the catalog at West Marine the other day.
