Re: re:[bolger] glue
- On a visit to the Edey and Duff Boat yard last summer. I
noticed one of the workers sanding the wooden teak rails for their
new day sailor (it is not a Bolger, but does have an electric
engine!) I asked him what he used to get the rail bedded down so
beautifully. He said 5200 tan colored. It looks like wood and sands
well when dry.
I considered using it for the rails and gunwales on my Micro but
changed my mind when I found the price for this would be four times
as much as using epoxy. I also considered putting a heavy bead of
this on top of the keel prior to jacking in place, but that too was
more expensive and no more effective than epoxy. It seems like nice
stuff if you can afford it, It is easier to clean up than epoxy (I
used it over and under all the keel bolts that hold the keel batten
on. It is very difficult to work with in cold weather.
I guess this horse is dead. Sorry, but I could not resist

It was actually cheaper than the home improvement sealant!
I compared the ingredients, a little more VOC/solvent in the marine
version, otherwise identical.
So use the home type. Works just as well.
