    Clive:- I have a 25ft Bruce Robberts Sail boat i'm rebuilding. Extensive wood-rot has necessitate
    the removal of the fore deck & Cabin roof and cabin sides. Can I fully bond the new decks sheathed in Fiberglass to the Hull, or is there something i'm missing ?

    Yes, with epoxy resin. Fiberglass hull needs to be coarse sanded where the bonding is to take place.
