Hi Guys I am new to the forum. I need some advice PLEASE. I have damage on my 20ft bass boat just above the bow eye. It seems like it was caused by the front trailer roller. When trailing the boat the roller rest's on that damaged area. (roller rest exactly in the chipped away area on the keel) I have attached pictures of the damage on the keel and of a bow eye stainless plate that I need to form to the keel using a rubber mallet. I was told I can fill that hole with 3M 5200 and stick a stainless steel bow eye protection plate over the area that rest on the trailer roller. My question is can I use 3M 5200 for filling that chipped away area and stick on the stainless plate? Or is there another adhesive I should consider for the job? Will the 3M 5200 be strong enough to hold the stainless plate there forever? Please advise. Etienne (from Michigan)
I am experimenting with some scrap pieces of teak wood, to get a better feel for what its like to work with teak. I hope to build an outdoor patio table in the next month or two, and you really can't beat the timeless look of teak. My predicament:The plans I am looking at call for pocket hole screw and glue joinery. The screws will be stainless steel, but my understanding is that regular carpenter's or similar 1 part adhesives are ineffective on teak due to it's oily nature. Doing some digging online, I saw that the best course of action is to keep the glued ends rough sanded and wipe down with acetone before bonding and clamping. Are there other options? Would Gorilla Wood Glue work? I would strongly prefer to not have to deal with manually mixing ratios. Teak is too expensive to take a chance and have it turn out poorly. Your advice is appreciated!
