Does DOW 795 ever cure, bond or dry?

As previously posted I surface installed new windows on my C&C 26. As suggested i used Dow 795 caulking. Now more then a week later this Dow stuff is still tacky and soft. I smeared a line of it between two scraps of left over pieces of 1/4" acrylic and several days later I was able to very easily slip them apart. It seems that this stuff has no more bonding strength than ordinary water. I am now very glad I also used double sided tape and some screws.
Years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than the ones you did do.
