I am fixing up my 1998 14 ft hyside. I am wondering if there is a better glue to use that will really stay on like it's part of the boat? Also does gorilla glue have anything out that maybe comparable?

Thanks. I was using something else. I've had a hard time with the patches staying on when they get beat on by the desert sun.

Shore adhesive is good for Hypalon; StaBond is better

The most important aspect is the freshness of the glue- should be less than a year old, and not stored below freezing

I've had problems with patches pealing using both of these glues. I quit having any problems once I switched to using Cliftons Hypalon two part adhesive from NRS. Like Randy suggests, save yourself some headaches and go with the good stuff. Make sure you prep it right. The NRS website has full instructions. Good luck.

I used Stabond on my Hyside back in 2002 or '03, when I got it, to put on more d-rings. Followed Hyside's instructions. No problem with them since then.

Nobody cares that you are a river guide. I wash dishes and nobody cares about that either.

Dumb Question
