It's neither a polyurethane nor a polysulfide but rather a polyether. It's supposedly more UV resistant but in my own experience it does yellow.

It has a similar general rated bond strength to 4200 at 300 PSI.. However it bonds to gelcoat at about 424 PSI. At 500 hours it has an elongation before break of 804% but at 1000 hours it drops back to 723 which tends to mirror polyurethane products losing flexibility over time..

It would not be my first choice for below water use..

Probably, but if you go with 4200, you can wait until it is mostly or fully cured..

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.

It says on the packing that it is safe for "most plastics." I suppose the only way to know for a particular plastic is to try it?

Also, when it bonds to gel coat at 500 psi, does this mean its stronger than the gel and should be considered permanent?
