    I don't know, the tried and tested one that is safe to use is Pratleys Putty.

    Is it designed for reef use? by the sound of it no, not if your Dad used it for the "throne" i would stick to reef related products.

    It will be quite fine, stand it up in the sand or wedge it in-between some rocks for the night.

    You can use it, I've used it plenty. Just rinse off the talk under a tap for a few minutes after you've mixed the 2 sticks together. Cut off the desired amount and pop in into a microwave for a few seconds (5 seconds) It will make it easier to work with.
