Interesting, do you have any data on how it compares to 3M 5200? I know that is the go to for most boaters.

View attachment 329292Hey thanks for the reply, Your talking about these circled pcs correct?

Yes those are the braces that these SC boats over 16' really should have. 16'rs just don't seem to have the problem.

Not sure I know what you mean to use the adhesive for, gluing the braces rather than solid riveting?

That SubStructure is Lookin' good!

One thing that I see missing is a sub-deck track for running control cables, wiring and fuel lines. I did a CC conversion on my last boat and used several PVC runs; it was crucial. In your case since the lateral supports are already fastened, you can still feel long lengths of aluminum sheet metal and fabricate a trough by connecting to a longitudinal stringer.

It’s cheaper, $13/tube (310ml)
I’ll ask the Weicon Monday and cut and paste they’re answer to why use Weicon vs 5200

I’m not saying it’s better...... I’m not 100% on anything. Ha. Cheers

Yes I’ll run pvc to hold all my electrical, majority will be within the Center console, but yes running forward and rear will be conduit/pvc,
I can still bend/sneak it in, I’ve tried already. 100% it’s needed.

I will have to look at it. Its cheaper then 3M 5200 if you don't include shipping. One site showed it was $12.99 but shipping was $67. Would be interesting to see how it stands up overtime for your project.
