I have a large RC boat about 70". the width of the boat is about 21"
I want to adhere a flexible plastic panel to the top of the boat. the boat is a catamaran racer with gelcoat. The bond needs to stand up to waves and occasional roll -overs.
The panel will be a mount for various Go-Pro cameras so the weight will really just be the panel itself. The panel size will be 20" x 20" x 1/16". The panel weight is around 3 lbs.
The top side of the boat will flex somewhat, but not too much. The boat will reach speeds of 50mph.

I have thought of using uv resistant epoxy, 3M 5200, 3M 8115 to mount the panel.
There will be no need for the top side of the panel to be coated

Anyone have an opinion or experience with this type of mounting?
