4. Sand the handle lightly with sandpaper and clean with Toluol for Hypalon or MEK for PVC.
5. Apply one thin application of the 2 part glue (you can mix the glue in a paper cup) on the boat and on the handle. Let that dry for 20 minutes.
6. Apply one more application on the boat. Let that dry for 20 minutes.
