I'm starting my deck soon on my strip job. For the hull I used Titebond II and it worked well. I am considering switching to polyurethane glue for the deck work. I read somewhere it was recommended since it would tolerate excess sunlight better than a water-based yellow glue.
Any particular tips using this for stripping? What is the set time compared to Titebond?
I may have started that rumor. At one time I had problems with glass/epoxy bonds stressing - creating white dots along glue lines on the deck. Since I know yellow carpenter's glue can be reactivated by heat, I though strong summer sun was the problem. I've since tried bending bare wood strip panels with the heat gun and I've not had them fall apart so I think the deck/sun theory is a bust.
Use regular Titebond glue. I cures fast and I've not had any problems in the last thirty boats.
All the best,
