Adhesive for deck

I have some trim strips that I need to attach to the deck, and don't know what adhesive to use. The wood is coated with epoxy and varnish, and the wood strips will also be attached with screws about every 6-8 inches. Any ideas on what adhec=sive would be suitable for mounting to the deck?

I searched through the forums, but couldn't find anything... Thanks everyone!

-Dave

3M 5200 sealant has the highest bonding strength - but very permanent, so - extremely difficult to remove components after curing, without some destruction.

IF your using screws I would use 3M 4200 strong but can be removed at a latter date. If this is something that moves a bit I would use sikaflex 291.
sikaflex 291 is as strong as 3M's 4200 but much more flexible...

I am resetting my deck fittings, I will use sikaflex 291.

I've read that some of the teak cleaners will react with 5200. 3M 101 might be a better choice? Product Catalog

For teak to deck sealant, I would use either Boatlife LifeCalk, or 3M 101. IMHO, both of these will work better on oily woods like teak than the 4200 or Sikaflex 291.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
