- On the Wyoming I will need to laminate three layers of 1/2" plywood for the
bottom. I have done this before using epoxy slightly thickened and is
probably an excellant way to do this but.......
Mr. Bolger calls for a boat nail every square foot with a note that "two is
even better" to help eliminate any "holidays" in the glue. These nails stay
in place so I'm thinking of saving lot's of time by using the polyurethane
glues such as "Gorilla Glue"? At 1/2 ounce per square foot for these glues,
no real cost savings but lot's of time.
Maybe a good polyurethane construction adhesive will work too. This glue
will not be exposed to water so water proof is not a requirement, water
resistant should be okay.
I can't see a down side of this and the upside is the speed of assembly.
- Why nail? just let the two plies float. Realisticaly
we want some load sharing, and if you don't use glue,
your nailing pattern might go from 1' centers to 3"
