I'm surprised to hear doubts about the use of epoxy as a boatbuilding
glue...Admittedly, the 5 minute kind you get in the twin tubes in the
hardware store isn't waterproof, and all epoxies are very toxic (one should
assume this is true of all adhesives); but nowadays you can hardly even find
other kinds of glue at boatbuilding supply shops, except for specialty
fillers like Sikaflex.
