Epoxy will become rock hard, even when thickened. It will not give or flex and will eventually fail. When it does it may well pull the gellcoat off with it. Even if it lasts a while, you will have a very difficult time removing the parts in the future without damage. Good quality mechanicle fasteners and caulk or butyl tape is best.
