Glue

Postby Bill Dunn » Tue Apr 05, 2016 6:50 pm

Two weeks ago I was giving my Sea Lancer a good going through for a spring cleaning and I ran across what we all fear - transom rot!!! I sure was glad I decided this was the year for a coat of varnish on the inside, or I might not have found it. After a lot of investigative work on how it is assembled and installed ( and a lot of pictures) I got the old one out. It was worse than I thought. I was lucky and it was all in the transom. I have found everything I need to rebuild ( 12 " 5/4 mahogany and 5/4 white oak heartwood for the inside) and between the Bolt Depot and Jamestown Distributors I can get everything else. My question is what is the best glue to use? I was thinking an epoxy, but how about the original Gorilla Glue? The glue joint will be above the waterline, and Gorilla Glue says it is waterproof. Any suggestions?

I was taking the pictures as I was working my way through so I have a reference to what it should look like when I put it back together. The memory isn't what it used to be. Digital cameras are a wonderful thing.

Thanks Andreas. I didn't think about using that. What do you use around the outside edge to seal it to the hull? Would 5200 be good for that too? Obviously, I don't plan on having to do this again, so getting it apart shouldn't be an issue!! Would Boatlife be a better product for this?

Yes, 5200 for the plank to transom cause like you wrote, never plan on doing it again.

Hey Bill,
How about letting us see some of those photos?
I have to rebuild the transom on my sea coaster. I am going to use epoxy Allen the way.
