It looks like it'll be just fine, but regular yellow woodworkers glue would be just as good and probably cheaper. The glue is only for holding the strips together until it gets glassed. After that the entire wood structure is encased in fiberglass and epoxy. Since the wood is completely protected, I've read that even regular white glue would work. But, I'll stick with yellow.

Doug,

I went with the Titebond II and all was fine. I used two bottles of the stuff for a 17' prospector. It's yellow in color and blends into the wood tone better than the white stuff IHMO.

Chuck is right about the strength, it really doesn't matter though since glass will be the ultimate hold!

I prefer the Elmer's filled glue for stripping over the yellow.

Two reasons, 1) it is thicker and doesn't run off the strips and 2) the dried color is closer to the natural cedar color and so it is harder to see.

On the current project the other day, I was out of the filled stuff and used some yellow that I had, what a pain.
