Nothing, but the temptation to be smutty is very strong.....

Hi Roger tried it out on the Nacra. Works on unloaded areas to a certain degree. Super glue thin seems to work better. I normally run in super glue and then when set some crack cure. Super glue is I think not waterproof?

Chris recommended it for the Merlin - you can buy it in the camping shop in Trowbridge (BCH in Islington up by the Shaw Trust garden centre) or Cordens in Warminster

this is the product's own website.

It's a very fluid stuff (like milk) that will penetrate cracks and then turn a little rubbery. What I like about it is that it stays elastic and won't glue parts together that should not be glued together. Also it's not silicon based so it is kind on later varnishing.
What I don't like about it that it won't glue bits back together that you do want to glue together!
It won't fill large gaps, really only works on hairline gaps (maybe two or three hairs' widths)

I recon the inventor has put some intelligent thought into what is needed.

In otherwords useful in the right place.
Cordens in Warminster stock it.
