PIN everything possible if you plan to sail her.
I used brass rod, sewing pins (small head, cut to length needed), small brads, even screws in some places.
The other approach on parts where pinning may not work is to drill many small, shallow holes on both contact surfaces and use epoxy/JB Weld.
The drilled surface should look like the surfae of the moon - a lot of "craters" to create mechanical bonding area with the epoxy.
