You will need a mechanical fastening like a jubilee clip. Sikkaflex will eventually crack around flexible components. Are your trunks above or below the waterline (at rest)?

not sure yet, not been in the wetstuff!

the hypalon is fixed along the 5 inch length of the pipe and then just around the edge where it meets the transom, i was thinking of picking up a nice pair of stainless jubilees but if i can get away without it that would be good. perhaps a very heavy duty tiewrap might do the job also.

Belt and braces always the best way - if there is room stick a jubilee clip on - if not a good stainless cable tie.

Personally, I'd go for a couple of super heavy duty, industrial spec. black cable ties, as they'd look more discreet than stainless hoseclips. Unless of course you like a bit of shiny metal on your trunk

Mine has a Jubilee clip which I think looks good in an " Industrial Chic" kinda way. Cable ties look a bit temporary in my view. I doubt if the Sikaflex would ever let go, it's amazing stuff and unless running with the trunk down it's not doing much. You'd probably shred the trunk first. But, as the Codman says " belt and braces".

spent the day going from chandlery to chandlery looking for the right hinges for seats and bench seat, managed to find some suitable ones that will do for now

also picked up a couple of stainless steel band jubilee clips for the trunks , probably best to be safe than sorry

getting closer, fuel system is now ready to be filled!! on off valve fitted (in Red Garfie)

purchased this cover from a good man on ribnet, however before i fitted the seats etc it almost fitted perfectly but as i have fitted the seat backs and when i fit the screen and stainless around the screen then it will need alteration.

i have spoken with a company on the south coast that does these alternations, will post a pic and give feedback when the work is done as they will need to add a top hat section so to speak and modify it round the aframe.

if you have had an alteration done to your cover recently could you pm me their name and phone number so i can contact a few to gauge pricing and best deal
