Well, ran into a stumbling block. Previous owner secured the old dash with 5200 and it is stuck down. Going to see if I can. get a wire to cut it. This is why I do not recommend 5200 for anything. 4200 has excellent adhesion properties and is removable. As far as I am concerned. the entire boat needs to be serviceable and 5200 is not your friend for this

An oscillating tool might work if the access is good. There are some release agents available that might also help.

Try Marine Debond.

Slice into it as you can with a blade. Apply Marine Debond. Wait. Rinse and repeat.... Should go pretty easy.

If you look at the properties of 5200 vs 4200, you will see 5200 has its place. I would not have used 5200 for the dash, but it is certainly useful for below-the-waterline applications like bonding of struts and through-hulls. Oh, and I recently re-bonded my hull-to-deck joint -- all of it -- and used 5200 there too....
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!
