    Why do'nt you use flashtape? Airtech Flashbreaker 1 should do, or Flashbreaker 1HT (high tack). This works at least up to 200 degrees C. It is not affected by a little sunlight, like ducttape.

    Vapour barrier tape sticks tenaciously to almost anything, also designed for 20+ year use.
    I can't reccomend a brand, I've only been in the situation of trying to remove it while fitting joinery..

    the auto parts stores make a metallic muffler tape for temporary repairs of tail pipes. Seems that should hold up to heat.

    The problem is that the way you remove most adhesives is with heat, they get soft and will not hold as you heat the adhesive. Seems to me that using adhesive caulk rather than tape might be the way to go. Or to mechanically hold it in place with large bungee cords wrapped around the hull.

    Hardware Sales is selling some stuff called Rescue Tape for fishing things while they are still hot, flowing liquid, running, etc. Not sure the price is right for every-day use, but might be worth a look on Google while waiting for your beer to chill.

    Foil tape sticks to most anything. Get the expensive 3M stuff, sticks to Visqueen, should stick to peel ply.
