I've used Eternabond tape quite successfully.

Have had some on the roof of the canopy on our vehicle covering holes from previous owner (Telstra) & along a seam. Has been on there for over 8 years now & still doing the job. It has seen the harsh hot climate of the top end for a number of years & never needed any attention.

Yep Eternabond for me, butyl tape will/can dry out even when used as it was intended (sealing glass in Aluminium windows).
