I think as long as you never have to tear into the affected area again you will be fine and the 5200 will do a good job as a sealant. What the others are stressing is not to use it somewhere that you may have to access again in the future, or it will be a bear to remove.

Yes - Crabman said it more clearly than I did. Removing 5200 is extremely difficult. It does seal. I once had to separate 2 pieces of teak with 5200 between them. It was hammer and chisel all the way through the seam. Your repair should not leak.

It is only difficult to get apart as opposed to near impossible. I would think using a product meant for the job would be best.
Using the correct product will always give the best results for any given job. A lot of people are always going to "go cheap" and there's not much that can be done for them except read their posts where the fix didn't work.
As far as 3M 4200, I don't know if 3M has discontinued that. I used it to put in a couple of thru-hulls for air conditioners, but I started having an issue of buying it that had already cured and turned hard in the tube. 3M acknowledged the problem, but I never did hear what they did about it. 4600 is a very similar product and I've used it quite a bit without problems, including below-waterline applications.

But 5200 is not cheap, so I don`t think the OP was looking for the cheap way out.

I think, it's not that moment when we should save money. reliability is much more important.
