    A good dose of engine cleaner ( Detergent type) cleans that wax off. Rinse Very Well and allow to dry naturally. To take the gloss off I use fine wire wool before washing.

    Regardless of your glue choice, make sure you remove all trace of the wax flow coat from attachment points.
    The epoxy resins used to make the hull are oxygen inhibited, to keep them receptive to subsequent layers. To remove tackiness from the last layer, an oxygen blocking wax coat is added. If this isn't removed, all adhesives will ultimately fail. A good sanding to remove the high gloss is all that's needed.

    Hi,
    The Gorilla brown glue is a polyurethane glue and is totally waterproof. (Immersible). Foams at the joint and get it on your hands it has to wear off. Suggest surgical gloves when using.

    The Gorilla glue that I have been using are as follows,
    Gorella wood glue, Gorella clear glue and Gorella brown glue.
    I hope this information is of use to you.

    Hi mate, just think about a 'spirited' arrival at the dockside, a good thump could cause the damage!!!

    Hi Jarvo,
    Thanks for your reply, I had not considered the brittleness factor so I think I will do some experimenting with flexing. I intend to have deck beams and bulkheads so there shouldn't be very much flex but who knows.
