    Will 5200 hold a piece of starboard to the inside if the hull so I can mount my fuel water separator under the rear hatch in my nmz. I don't want to drill thru the hull so I figured starboard would be good to drill into. Just curious about 5200 holding the starboard.

    Most say no.

    Others have scuffed it up and glued to some success. It's not structural, but...

    Use some pvc board and some epoxy. Pvc board is cheaper and holds a screw better

    Don't put anything on your skiff that isn't properly secured, period. That goes double for your fuel system....

    I'm figuring out the same thing right now. A couple options I came up with:
    1. Epoxy a PVC board to the transom and screw my separator and tach to that

    2. Build a small box/sled that holds the gas tank and I can scre the separator and tach to that. Whole thing can easily be removed from boat.

    3. Same idea as num 1 but use 3M dual lock which is like super Velcro for a not so permanent location until I find the most accessible and storage friendly spot.

    Pvc board and grab a tube of the west system 6-10 pre thickened epoxy. Put the tube in a caulk gun, screw on the mixing tip, squeeze out perfectly mixed and thickened epoxy, done, no guess work. A tube is like $16.

    Why don't you use some wood 6" X 6"? Fiberglass it and seal it up if you prefer. 5200 will hold but preparation is everything. You'll have to maintain a bond line thickness and give it 7-10 days to fully cure. After a couple years, if it feels like it is starting to let go or the wood is rotting, pry it off and do it again. A bond line of 1/16" will give you space to remove if needed by cutting with piano wire if needed.

    I watched someone use 5200 between a jackplate and the transom. When the jackplate needed to come off, the guy tore the gelcoat and fiberglass off the transom to get the jackplate off.

    Why?

    It looks like a portable tank ---- would not worry about ethanol gas in that quantity.

    Glad to know I am not the only one who has done this :-[.. 5200 is some uber strong stuff... Thinking it will hold a fuel filter easy... I removed the hardware from my jack-plate an my 25 Nissan just hung there!!! Had to jiggle and jerk to damage the gel coat,,, hummmm I mean remove the engine..

    Issue here is not adhesive strength. It's starboard adhesion properties.

    That said, I want to test this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5ASz464-v0
