    Hello Russ..

    not only the ply compatible glue..but what does your carpet suggest. ?

    Most backed carpets I would suggest Dap Contact cement ( troweled ). some are too thin and use a spray glue ( like 3m trim adhesive in a spray ).

    NO MATTER what you use.. Dont be alone ..and wear a respo.

    last thing you need is to be overcome with fumes..bad bad stuff here....make you feel your hair grow ...

    YD. ... be safe m8 ( fume glues are nothing to mess with ! )
    Do your best and caulk the rest

      I got mine at Lowe's. Outdoor carpet cement. Black can. I can't recall the name. If the wood is really wet it will take a long time to dry.

      and yeah, a good whiff and you'll have a headache for days.
      There are three types of people in this world:
      Those who understand math and those who don't.

        I got mine at Lowes also. Mine was in a white gallon bucket. I used it on PT plywood that was still wet. Took a while to dry. Once it dries it holds very well. I used it on a small section of flooring in my boat. It was a quick fix using cheap carpet last summer. I decided to fix it right this spring. Had to use a grinding wheel to get the carpet off.

          I build pontoon boats and we use sommething that looks and smells just like Elmers glue, it comes in a giant cube probably 80-100 gallons so I don't know a brand name but you can glue treated wood.

          I have used the trowel on outdoor carpet glue from Lowes/Menards on marine ply and it worked really well.

          What is up with all the Indiana boaters on here all of a sudden, never noticed alot of Hoosiers before.
          GO IRISH!!!!
