    RE: will this work

    You dont think 1/4 is too thick(heavy)?
    I usually use 1/8 on all my boats for the skin.
    Not sure on the glue though, I generally use polyurethane glue.

    You wanna use Gorilla glue - I just used it to glue 1/32 veneer on foam and it was AWESOME just make sure you have it weighted /taped down good or it will expand and makea bubble. works fantastic /Permanent. My last hull was foam with HPL laminate on bottom - SLIPPERY and pretty durable (know to run on ashphalt) but a little brittle and chippy - especially on asphalt. I went with cedar strips on this one - over foam.
