Hi, for my U26 I had to glue a silicon rubber gasket all the way round the equipment space to ensure a watertight seal with the perspex tween-deck.Total length ca 1m +. I used a waterproof gel CA glue which allows some adjustment time. Worked great. I still have have the sub! 😊😎

PS Some pics of the U26 installation (ca 2008) showing the rubber seal I fixed. It's still going strong! 😎
Hmm! Don't know why the site displays the photos in the wrong sequence!?
Maybe Dave_M knows or can find out and fix it!? 😎

Hi Keith,
On all my boat building I use a thick superglue, CA1500 thick grade Super Glue 1 x 500gm, supplied by a company in Hull Lincolnshire contact details ' www.sureloc-direct.co.uk. It is industrial strength and can be bought in small quantities but cheaper bought in the large 500gm size, if you ask they will supply small bottles to decant it into, if you don't ask you will not get them. I use it for plank on hull construction, deck planking, general construction etc. The only other glue I use is 2 part epoxy for sealing in prop tubes to the hull. If you want an immediate contact use an accelerator that is supplied in a spray can you only need a minute amount of spray on one or both surfaces. I have used this glue to fix the rubber around club 500s, speed boats and cruisers. I normally start at the centre of the aft, if you want the rubber to be level with the deck use a short flat piece of plastic or wood laid (guide) on the deck holding it so it just sticks out from the hull and butt the rubber up to this as you stick it on to the hull. To start lay a thin layer of superglue in the centre of the rubber for about 2", lightly press it in position and remove immediatly, quickly lightly spray accelerator and immediatly reposition accuratly. Continue around the hull using your 'Guide' to accuratly position each section. As you familierize yourself with the proceedure you will probably find you can glue 6" or so at a time. Make sure that you do not stretch the rubber especially around the corners. Hope this helps. Vic

Thanks for the glue tip Vic. 👍 Gets expensive with the standard shop sizes, half of which usually dries up 🤔 😎
