Sandusky -- I was thinking about something similar, g/flex's flexability/strength is particularly interesting for this type of application -- I'm leaning towards 5200 the joint but grind it back back in a slight V maybe 1/8" deep 4 inches up the boat and 4 inches down the keel and then glassing over with two thin layers of cloth saturated in gflex, it's kind of a compromise, the joint it self is still sealed with an adhesive sealant, and that sealant is protected with a layer of flexible glass

anyone else have any experience with G/flex?
