Re: Gluing Pedestal Guard Feet???

Drill and bolt.

Remember the 5200 (yuk) would be glued to the paint/gelcoat. So whichever bond is weaker - 5200 to gelcoat, or gelcoat to 'glass - will fail. Drilled and bolted with good backing plate distributes the load over a much larger and stronger area.

no-brainer, IMHO.
