    Re: Robbe PT15
    Hi Martin. The glue I used is epoxy mixed with micro balloons, and the stuffing box is installed with epoxy mixed with a little
    baby powder
    . I scuff the joint liberally with very coarse sandpaper so as to give the epoxy something to grip. So far Iโ€™ve not had a problem with any of my boats, as Iโ€™ve done all of them the same way with filled epoxy and a thorough scuffing. I did think about putting say, 1/8th square strip fwd and aft of the bulkhead joint, but that idea came to me just as the glue got good and hot as it cured, which was just a little too late. Cash PS-I do have a small stash of Stabilit Express, but I hate to use it unless absolutely necessary as itโ€™s hard to get in the US

    Work with Balsa wood
    I like to mix
    baby powder
    into my epoxy. Iโ€™ve used that on roughened up abs and havenโ€™t had an issue yet. That I know of, that is.

    two part epoxy resin
    Agree Cash, so don't use this trick with 5 minute epoxy folks๐Ÿ˜ฎ "
    baby powder
    as a filler ...". Great idea๐Ÿ‘ Turns out smooth as a baby's b....! Saves all that sanding and flatting๐Ÿ˜‰

    two part epoxy resin
    Letโ€™s โ€œheatโ€ this up, but not politcally๐Ÿ˜ When I was building and flying rc combat about 15 years ago, I found that heating mixed epoxy will bring it to the consistency of water. Very nice for pouring in a confined space, etc. However, it will cure very quickly if this procedure is performed. I also use
    baby powder
    as a filler in 2 part epoxy.
