Seam Sealer - Bulkhead

Getting ready to paint my new bulkhead and want to seal the seams beforehand. What's the best stuff? I would guess it needs to stay a little flexible but can also be painted over?

Thanks

Not sure where you saw that price, but amazon has it for $34

http://www.amazon.com/Brushable-Seam.../dp/B000PEW4I2

Summit has it even cheaper:

I used this stuff http://www.evercoat.com/productDetail.aspx?pID=257 on some recent work on my D110. It is a two part epoxy, flows real nice and sets up in about 10-20 minutes. It adheres so good, I can not get the drips off of my epoxy coated garage floor. It will probably work best, since it is self leveling, for the work piece to be horizontal. I have used other maxim overcoat product with great success, such as their epoxy panel adhesive. I found the products at a lock auto patin supply house. Also, the Maxim caulk gun, while pricey, gives excellent flow control.
