Mission accomplished....

...on the mini-glue lam that replaced the rotted out portion of the boat. I used primarily Gorilla/Sumo glue because of ease of use and little toxicity -if at all. I can see why epoxy resin is used a lot by the boat builders I've run's got a really good grip and it's really hard and stiff and strong, when used on reinforcing joints, you end up with a boat that is minimal on flexing, if, on the other hand, you use something like 3M 5200 (a flexible, yet tenacious caulk), the boat will end up being, very possibly, too flexible.
