I can say this though, PL has no strength at all if it foams in the joint.
The glue expands to fill the tiny cracks and wood grain which is where it
gets its strength by imbedding itself into the material. The foam on the
other hand is just that, foam and can be peeled away with a finger nail. No
way that could be safe on a boat.
It must be a tight joint and I personally would keep the fasteners in place.
The Wyo is just as you say, designed around mechanical fasteners with glue
being the secondary fastener so to speak.
