In Response To: Off Topic: Drydeck Glue ()

I'm making a drydeck for my workout boat to eliminate all the layers where the skirt and paddle jacket overlap. In the past I've always used Mcnett or Aquaseal. I'm using an old Seals nylon tunneled skirt and junky old paddle jacket.

Does anyone have any experience using Gorilla glue for this sort of application? It is the only glue I can find from Home Depot and I'l like to do this tomorrow so I'm trying to avoid ordering the Mcnett. The GG bottle says flexible so I'm hoping for simliar results.

Thanks

Can you sew the nylon tunnel to the jacket?
That might be a good enough seal for workout splashes.
You could just use seam-sealer or iron-on tape on the seam,later, if necessary.

This method assumes you have access to one of the essential power tools - a sewing machine! :-)
