"Captain" + Starmada Splash Of The Year 2020

Denatured alcohol makes short work of 5200... just don't use it near the areas you want to seal. Acetone is more suitable for cleaning-up the patches.Holy cow, did you ruin your clecos?
As far as clecos, I've seen them, played around with them a little and find them interesting but I don't own any. Do you recommend I hunt some down for installing the patches?
Thinking as I'm typing, I'm not sure how I would hold those patches in place without them. Maybe throw in a few temporary small screws, install rivets, pull screws and install rivets where the screws were? I may have answered my own question.
I'm going to try the epoxy idea on the bow gasket. I'll still have to do something to stop water from migrating from the keel drain hole up and into the bow. Maybe just fill the keel full of sealant. I've seen that suggested elsewhere.
Clecos are worth their weight in gold if you have alot of patching to do. They're very handy even for reassembly. I did used screws until someone recommended clecos on my rebuild thread.
