  contact cement is waterproof ...

...... the hull side is non porus , the wood side is porus .

Contact cement works well on both porus and non porus surfaces .

Sealing the thin pine blocks is a must regarless what you use to bond them to the hull .

The little wood blocks you described certainly can't be being ask to do much work stress wise , so the contact cement will do the job as good as anything else ... it's not going to seperate as long as the wood isn't allowed to absord moisture .

And even if it does seperate one day , so what , it will be clean .

Just what are you asking the wood blocks to do ??

Have you ever seen what happens to an old countertop when it's left outside for years . The contact layer of ply (top layerr) seperates from the others and is still stuck to the laminate .
