      I think the rationale behind a boiling test is that it is 'accelerated',
      rather than a reflection of real conditions.
      I would say that a glue that passes a boil test is more likely to stand up
      to years in damp conditions than one that didn't, but I haven't got the time
      to do a 10 year programme of tests to find out for sure. Any info is better
      than none.

      Thanks for the link to that web site. The one problem i have with
      boiling tests, is that a boat will never see boiling water. A soak test
      is somewhat valid, but even using epoxy, a plywood boat will delaminate
      very easily after long soaking. I would hope that a sandwich core
      plywood boat covered in epoxy and fiberglass would never see that kind
      of soaking problem. If it does, the old rule of thumb comes into play.
      That rule is "from compost it came and to compost it shall return". :o)
