Dont know why they changed.
I think you are correct. Goiot
offered to send me new "glue" but i wanted a more secure solution. Their recall
fix uses 3M VHB tape. Maybe it is okay, but I used some it on a different project
and it didn't hold and I ended up using screws.
Last week a cat forgot to close their escape hatch
and it took an intentional grounding, and two days of effort by many people to get the hatch
secured and the water
bailed out. You don't really have a chance on the open ocean if the hatch fails.
