I tried acetone, and while it worked, it just wasn't really cutting it. Felt a bit stuck til I came across the advice mentioned here about PVC pipe primer. That did the trick and worked much better than the acetone!

The humidity is too high now, so I'm going to attempt the glue tomorrow, when its drier. Just hope it all goes well and I get my boat back into the med!

Cheers for the top tip.
Think you are talking about the same thing!
