Outfitting question (adhesive?)

Just wondering what would be a good adhesive to use when outfitting a boat with new foam pads...any recommendations?

3m 77 spray works well,as does rubber cement.

the key is to apply and let it set up, (both sides) then do a second coat and wait for it to get tacky. If you are in a hurry a heat gun or hair dryer can speed the curing, prior to sticking them.

It will stick hard and fast. you will not get a second chance to fine tune it.

We use barge cement (available at your local hardware store) or h2glue available from NRS in our shop and it works great. Paste it on, wait til it gets tacky and put it where it needs to be

i have used a few different glues and Dap contact cement is the easiest and is very strong. i have not had good luck with the spray on.
