Some of you may remember that I had some wet rot issues towards the bow on my Crosby. I cut out the rotted part and got my wood-worker buddy to get a mahogany piece to fit. I just got the piece along with some wood plugs. When I attach the new piece, what adhesive should I use that works best gluing wood to fiberglass? 3M 5200?

A flexible urethane adhesive would be appropriate and 3M 5200 is a good example. Clean the fiberglass surface first, then sand lightly, then clean again.

Kind of a related question, Dave/Brian, may be pertinent......I noticed Atwood is now offering "quick setting" urethane adhesive labeled 7200. (Wally world, about $7.50 a tube) Says NOT to use on any parts you may ever want to take apart! I'm wondering if it's really 3M 5200 "fast setting" being sold under "private label", or just creative marketing trying to pick up customers from 3M ?

It is possible, Atwood does not manufacture adhesive so they would get it from a manufacturer and re brand. There are a number of manufacturers that make a 7200 urethane. In my opinion (as a previous marketing person at 3m...so my ideas are 10 years old) I doubt it is 3M 5200.
