Re: PL Premium
- Must be more than one flavor of this stuff, as I have some that came
in a caulking tube. Seemed to work fine, but I haven't done any
testing or used the boat yet. Takes a while (days or weeks in cold
weather) to harden. I think there is PL Premium Construction Adhesive
and then some other type or types.

things and it seems to work but I don't go whacking things with
I did make a test - an old brick, with a piece of okume glued to it,
and a "padeye" cut from a scrapped inflatable dinghy glued to that.
It's all still in one piece. I use it as a ballast weight for sailing
models. The padeye is so when the model capsizes, the ballast doesn't
head for the bottom of the bay.
There is a PL Polyurethane which comes in a large tube.
There is also a PL which is 'construction adhesive' and seems to be
same sort of stuff as liquid nails (a must-avoid product, if you ask
PL also makes polyurethane caulking which runs about $4.50 for 10 oz,
comes in different colors, there is a 'housing grade' and a 'marine
grade' which are about a dime apart in price. I don't know what the
difference is; the contents seem identical.
I am going to use this to caulk-glue the bottom onto a small (6ft)
model scow and see how it works.
