Is there any apparent reason why it split? You could use a heat gun to soften the adhesive
, and lift
the formica away. Check that the bulk head
doesn't have a problem. Use the smelly contact cement, following the mfg's directions to rebond it, and if marine
tex sounds a little extreme, you could purchase
a tube of formica seam fill from a cabinet shop or a supplier and use that to disguise the repair, and it would be water
resistant. When rebonding the formica, rub it very hard to get a complete bond. In the shop I uses a special roller to press it down. Be inventive. That is what is used on counter tops.
I had a Crealock
37 for 12 years, sailed lot's of miles. I am surprised that it split like that. Is there movement in the bulkhead?
