adhering plywood to fiberglass

17416 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  mitiempo
I have a '75 Islander 28. The ply has delamenated due to leakage @ the ports. We have removed all the ply from inside & have cut new ply to replace with. I can't seem to get an answer on what type of adhesive to use. The ply is teak veneer & will be applied to fiberglass. Any answers?

I'd seal the surface to be glued with straight epoxy and before it's totally set use thickened epoxy to attach to cabin side. Best to dry fit it first and plan how to hold it there until the epoxy sets - overnite. If you're lucky there will be a few places where you can use screws into something other than the fibreglass cabin side. Where you have to apply pressure to get it to stay cut scraps of wood long enough to brace it to something else in the cabin. Good luck.
