    I did some experimenting yesterday with a couple of pieces of scrap Plascore.
    The pieces are leftover cuts from stringers going into the 25 T Jason. I wanted to see how strong a bond Nida Bond would be with zero fasteners in "gluing down" the nidacore deck.

    I bonded two pieces together using Nida Bond Compound. The stuff is super strong and bonded both pieces together. I had to stand on the piece and just about bend it in half to separate the bond. The weak point is the plastic honeycomb material.

    I have a couple of more ideas to try.

    FWIW, Bill D
