    Just order some parts from the site for my 146, including plexus for the cracks. What I got was the same devcon Plastic welder I can get at walmart. Does anyone know if they are interchangable....is the devcon as good as plexus??

    I've had great luck using the West System epoxy on my two ACP boats.

    Keep us posted. You have my number if you need to call. You are right about starting anything late at night as I avoid doing so with small trains. I went out at night on S&R, boat sinking, emergency, etc only unless pulling wide load with no traffic around.
