marine glues

got some none slip matting on the RIB which is lifting. Any advice on solvents to remove the old glue and types of adhesive to bond the mats to the hull?

Is the none slip on the cockpit sole? if so I would use a heat gun to lift the remaining material, the something like meths or acetone should shift the glue, be careful though if your floor is painted!!!

Bostik 2402 to glue it back into place.

I can vouch for this: it is very strong.

Managed to glue my drysuit sock to a plank of wood and it took lots of attempts to free it

I would recommend the 2402 or the NE 486 from Bostik, IMHO no other adhesive is up to the job

Yes Drew, most chandlers will get it in for you or you could order online: RS Components do it at a reasonable price.
