    G'day Bill,

    I was toying with the idea of using the 3M product I used on my boat to seal
    and secure the rubbing strakes. The stuff is pretty amazing and strong as

    I thought about ABS cement too and might test a drop on the outside of the
    case and see what happens. My case is also an underwater kinetics unit so
    the ABS might work. But I wonder how it would react to the foam post. The
    stuff is pretty nasty!

    I will stew on this before leaping and when I come up with something, I will
    let you know how I make out.

    cheers and thanks,
