Re: More building and pics, as promised.
- Dunno, probably because it's the first Skeg I've ever done and most
others who have, epoxy them in, from what I read on the Groups. In
retrospect, maybe I should have made it a little less permanent. Oh
well, live and learn.

- There are lots of postings about epoxy and PL Premium, but not too
much about 3M 5200. Why not? I would think it would be just the thing
for items like skegs which are about 98% permanent.
- I love the stuff myself , it just costs more and needs to be used up within
48 hrs of opening the tube .
3 tubes of PL for the one of 3M .
