This reminds me of A Wharram builder
I met in Galveston years ago. He drove all the screws in his 40-something footer with a hammer; the heads were to get them out with he said. And even though WEST was in vogue, he stuck with polyester resin as adhesive
, and sheathing. I guess it goes without saying he was a circumnavigator-to-be.
Given the amount of work involved in rebedding hardware, and the likelihood of wet core
, if applicable, if the Lexel doesn't work out. I can't see trying it to what? save $6-7 a tube. The search function will tell you that polysulfide or butyl rubber are your best bets. Not 5200 or silicone or Dap, Alex, Tough as Nails ....
That said, someone somewhere will swear that Lexel is the greatest. There was a thread just last week explaining why if it says for marine
use or similar that may NOT signal a ripoff.
