Glue Requirement

BenditPVC. 
~
Remember when I told you Peeps about how I bought this gadget to help us bend PVC electical conduit for the Hartford job about a year ago?
~
Course you do.

Well I put this baby to good use yesterday creating a frame for a weather shield on the Herreshoff Columbia Tender.
~
After about ten minutes of heating, a 7/8" piece of PVC become as pliable as spaghetti in a colander.  It stiffens up soon to a rigid shape in whatever custom orientation you need.
~
Now I have to find a good glue to join blue plastic tarp to the PVC which will create the final shield.   I thought that the PVC glue would do the trick, but it didn't work.
