attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

Hi all,

Looking to do a modified version of the project at The Frugal Mariner: Insulating your boat. I'm going to put some hardwood strips on the hull and then attach some frp to replace the 33 year old carpet.

Question is what should I use to attach the wood to the hull? It won't need a lot of strength, but it needs to stick and hold up to 10 pounds of weight.

Epoxy? Liquid nails? Something else? The more specific the better.

I can keep a secret, it's the people I tell who can't.
