Thanks again for the advice. I'll try the superglue idea and let people know how it works (in the short run, at least).

Hijacked! Glass versus aluminum. Inevitable, I guess. Thanks for your opinion.

Default Lake Erie killed my glass boat....

...blew out a 6 ft section of the seam where the deck attaches to the hull- on both sides at the transom, causing the transom to essentially come off the boat. The boat made it back to the ramp but sunk before I could get it on the trailer. This was in 1980. I then switched to tin, and save for 6 leaky rivets on a 1981 Sea Nympth, I'm now on my 3rd tin boat in 28 years and none of them have leaked, much less come apart and sunk.
