Which method do you prefer?
I recently had a visit to my shop from a professional cabinet maker and good friend. When I told him I was bonding the frames of my boat with epoxy only and absolutely no fasteners, he just about flipped. "NO FASTENERS!! Are you crazy?? Your boat will fall apart in a couple of years from stress cracks alone.
This got me wondering about the longevity of epoxy glued joints. Should I back up the joints with screws or continue to build with epoxy alone?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
