A couple of years ago, I noticed that my bilge pump had come adrift and was laying on it's side in the bilge.  Being in a hurry, because I was getting ready to go out, I noticed my hot glue gun hanging over my work bench.  Figuring they use hot glue guns to put cars together, I decided what the hell.  So I dried off the hull, roughed it up a bit with some 60 grit, squirted a big old glob of hot glue on the hull, pressed the strainer into it, reinstalled the bilge pump and off I went.  I figured I'd have to come up with a more permanent solution eventually, but it's held up great.  Since then I've used the technique for a number of attachment problems I've encountered and haven't had any problems.  Easy removal too with a heat gun.  Try it you'll like it, easy installation, no clamping, no waiting for setup and easily removal.

yes...great idea.  Many in the marine industry subscribe to the '5200 everything' mentality.  I believe the only place to use it is for a permanent, never to be removed bond between 2 surfaces.  I don't use it on thru holes or transducers.  These are all item that will eventually need to be replaced.  If you ever have tried to separate 2 surfaces that have been bonded with 5200...usually the substrate will fail before the 5200....in the case of thru hulls....the fiberglass will fail and need to be repaired.

I have seen people use 5200 on rod holders...crazy...

Unfortunately I bought my trim tabs from Wholesale Marine and I got the 12 x 18 instead of the 18 x 12 (the difference being which side is hinged). WM will not take back the ones I bought from them so I'll soon be listing them on Ebay. Live and learn.

Way to go, Anthony, now it starts to look like a real boat.  Are you going to glass in your deck to the hull? I would probably skip that step if I had to do it again. The Arjay 7121 plus gravity should hold the floor in place just fine and the fairing compound should make it leak proof. I guess I'm lamenting because my fiberglass work leaves a lot to be desired. Good luck on whatever you choose.

Did the 7121 eat through your gloves and try to devour your skin? 

That stuff is horrible!!!!!!  I am sure i am going to die from exposure to that stuff.

agree 7121 is enough. 

this is NOT a one man job....i would have 2-3 others helping me if i ever did a deck again

7121, 1301, 5200, fiberglass resin, MEKP, ... it's all a lethal cocktail. I can't tackle the smallest job without wearing some kind of substance. The worst for me is the fiberglass dust imbedding itself into my sweaty skin.
