Adhesives

Postby Sgtrock » Mon Jan 23, 2017 2:33 pm

New to the forum, just received my plan set Saturday.
What adhesive are you guys typically using?
The 3M 5200 is pricey, I have heard some people use PL Pro adhesive, some use PL Pro masonry sealer/adhesive, some use thickened epoxy.
What are you using Brad? Not just the chines but bulkheads and framing too.
Many thanks, I'm excited to get going.

I pretty much have switched to thickened epoxy for adhesive now. For minor parts, I usually use 5200 or Sikaflex.

Thanks for the reply.
I hunt with my two boys so we are looking at bumping up the size to the DH2 or similar.
Gathering materials.
I am still very intrigued by the Hellcat on your website, looks awesome.
We hunt the CT River and Long Island Sound inshore.

Thank you. If I were to build another Hellcat, I would open it up and eliminate some of the covered space at the front of the cockpit. I would also incorporate the seat into the rear bulkhead area and possibly a semi-v up front.
