        Check out a sporting goods store that sells whitewater canoes. Most are
made from ABS of some sort [Royalite, Royaltex, Oltenar] all come from
basic ABS sandwich stock. They should have a really tough glue for
mounting tie points and thigh harness to the bottom of the interior. IN
my experience .. NOTHING else will bond to the ABS.
