Hi all,

A strange question, but bear with me....

I build Radio controlled model boats as a hobby, and I'm just completing a radio controlled hovercraft. But I need a glue that I can attach the skirt with....

The glue MUST stick nylon (the skirt material) to wood (marine plywood), and it MUST be fully waterproof.

Does anyone know of a suitable glue that will stick these materials permanently? I've tried epoxy and contact adhesives without success.... The epoxy wont stick to the nylon very easily, and the contact adhesive doesn't give a very strong bond - The contact area of the skirt is only 1/2" wide.

ANY help would be appreciated!
