Shelter and warmth!!!!I've seen it used but I haven't used it myself yet. I was thinking of turning my duffy into a high end sport fisher that was fast and economical. I must be getting old.. I enjoy thinking about doing the work but can seem to do stuff like that anymore Having a place to do it is key!
I've been using Nidabond for at least 7 years I know of right off the top of my head, never had an issue with it. I do know if you want them to stand behind the NidaCore they want you to use Nidabond. It is suppose to have something in it that bonds to the facing better. As far as 3M owning the company they will do what they do best, cheapen the product and charge twice as much for it. I called last week on some the price has gone from $2.60 to $3.80 a square foot. I bought 5# closed cell foam for just over $4 an it's a better product.Looking for information from people who have used Nidacore with Nidabond- a new bonding agent made by Nidacore. How does it work?

5# is what most of the foam distributers lable 8.8 and is what they sell for coring hulls. There realy isn't much prep to it you can put it into a poly bond or Divilett. The biggest problem and the thing to remember ALWAYS resin coat your foam placing resin coat into putty. It will come apart without resin the foam has kind of a dusty coating on it and it can work like flour on pizza dough keeping it from bonding the two.Thanks for the reply Mainely Boats. Any photos of the 5# and how you prep it?
