Very cheap and non-toxic which means you can splash it around in tight spaces without worrying about your health or your wallet! Even in wet paces (I've used it on the inside of a fresh water tank) it seems to last nearly forever if allowed to dry out fully before putting more water on it.
What a great idea! Do you have any pictures of what it looks like complete? Is the finish semi-nice?

Re: How to mount water maker pressure vessels to hull

Weldmount Systems have a variety of mounts that are easily fastened to bare fibreglass.
That would be the lightest method and certainly strong enough.
I even mounted our hot water tank to the vertical wall of our hull with 4 Weldmount studs.

PVA drys clear. The look really depends on what you're putting it on. Porous timbers will really soak it up wereas hardwoods don't take as much. It's certainaly not a shine finish but it looks good enough for the engine room (certainly stops oils from soaking in and staining timbers) and for the inside of lockers and in the bilge. I'm stuck in Europe right now (there's a new term "Covidcast" meaning cast ashore somewhere due to Covid) so it will be a while before I could take any photos back in NZ.
