This is my first post in the forum, but trust me I have read many hours in this forum to gather knowledge.
First to tell you I am an outdoor person and lives in Bangladesh. Here in the other side of the globe, branded glue like 3M, Bostic, Polymarine, Zodiac are not available.
I have bought this new Bombard 420S (wooden floor SIB) from Canada back in 2011, and in last 7 years has been used only 4-5 times. btw, I do not have a outboard yet
. Due to bad storage (not drying properly) now one of the valve came open and also the transom was lose in its boot/brace.
I have brought some industrial 2 part PU adhesive from India and managed to fix the valve. When I removed the transom it was like no glue was used. The lower corner part inside was rotten and soft.
I glued two marine ply using 1 component moisture curing PU adhesive ( Fevicol 1K PUR) to get the proper thickness and copy a new Transom.
Now I need advise:
1. Can i use the 1KPUR to add the wood transom to the rubber like brace/boot? (pic attached).
2. Can I prime the wood with 1K PUR using very thin layer, and then use 2 part PVC glue to attach the PVC floor to the wood part?
3. Though the old transom came out nicely, I cant insert the new Transom in place, any tips without removing the pontoon - Brace/boot glue that seems very much ok to me?
About the glue I have:
* 1K PUR is one component moisture curing PU glue, which expand and form like Foam.
Please help. Thanks in advance.
NB: Yes I have read all the advice in Polymarine website, and got the courage to fix the boat.
