I'm starting to go back together with the '78 31' Sovereign

All of the bucked rivets (so far) that I have installed have been well sealed with Vulkem and ParBond, but 59toaster's quote above has caused me to wonder - should I take the gasket off of the Olympics (if I have to use them), or leave the gaskets on?
My initial thoughts on the matter tell me to leave them on - more sealing action, another seal layer, increased resiliency....
Anyone have any thoughts on the pros (or cons) of installing the Olympics without the gaskets?
