    Hi. mek is very good you will not beat a weld for the strongest joint .it depends how wet your join is, on curing time anything from 2 seconds to15 seconds but remember mek can distaut plastics test on some scrap abs first. I repaired a split hull and deck made it strong and good as new take care hope this helps peter l πŸ‘πŸ‘

    When the hull and deck split on my fairwind due to rough parcel post handling although well packed and marked fragile. I used mek to tack back together and then used aeropoxy with light weight 24oz finishing cloth from inside the hull then used mek with a little bit of abs to thicken and weld all crackes and splits tog ether fnished with fine filler and spray seems all ok better than scrapping the hull, and boat hope this helps regards the yacht was a second hand buy regards peter l β›΅β›΅β›΅
