I'm working away on my first SUP and am wondering about which type of Gorilla Glue has worked best for others for attaching the skins to the skeleton. I've used the Gorilla Wood Glue for the rips and spine which has worked great. Only issue I can see me having is the wood glue version doesn't expand and I'm concerned it will cause the skin to not adhere to the spine/ribs in spots. Anyone had any issues on this? Chad what do you recommend is the best option for this part of the process.

Greetings Wedge, Welcome to the Zoo!
With regard to attaching the decks to the stringer/ribs I used normal wood glue. No problems. But after using that for bottom deck I got a bit concerned about the lack of "waterproofness" and spray painted the interior with a non-water base paint. But no separations, squeaks or leaks. It is a hollow 9'-1" with a vent.
