Yep. On a ply boat I'd expect it to be stronger than the bonding of the ply layers....

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Did mine (10mm acrylic)  in 795 and VHB tape two years ago.

*VHB on the inside- to stop 795 squeezing through to inside coach trim & to hold window in place until 795 set. 3M VHB is STRONG. Even on a slight curve the VHB stuck.

*795 in the remaining cavity to tape edge outside for first line of defense.

Trowel, cleanup, pull tape.

Probably not the cheapest option.

Didn't need paintable as we built coach sides with rebate for windows.

No leaks todate.

Fiddly tho.


****Remember gap for acrylic to expand in rebate****
