Default fibreglass and silicon

does anyone know whether I can fibreglass over the top of silicone sealant (the white kitchen/bathroom stuff) or will it eat away at it? like it does with foam ect.. as my homemade bait boat is leaking a little where I sealed around parts of it with silicone and wanted to fibreglass over these parts for extra protection. any ideas? if i can fibreglass it would the kits you buy at the local car accessory shops do or do I need special stuff?

Silicon will stand up to fiberglass. Many of my small parts molds are made of silicon.

It would be a better fix to remove the silicon and glass the seam itself. (less weight, Better bond)

Regular fiberglass kit from hardware store should be fine, unless the boat is made from epoxy. Then Use epoxy.
