Yes.  I love that it cleans off the FACE of vinyl with denatured alcohol.  I don't like that it never loses it's tack.  It holds pretty well, but as far as I'm concerned, it's great for temporary tacking of foam to foam, foam to vinyl, etc but not forever.  For a permanent, dry bond, I like Keyston high-temp adhesive in the spray can.  Holds like a SOB.  For very large areas, I like DAP Weldwood landau adhesive (I spray it on with a wanna-be Binks pot and compressor).  That stuff is amazing!  Wear your respirator  Undecided  For foam to foam I like K-Grip (sprayed on with glue pot and compressor as well). 

Now maybe my Cami experience is because of the hot/humid S. Florida environment.  Any of you guys up north have the same experience as me?

I use the Camie 313B clear adhesive in the 1 gallon can. I apply it with a K-Grip sprayer. I use it for bonding foam, and glueing batting to foam.
With the K-grip sprayer, I don't have to clean the nozzle after each use.

Yep.  Great stuff.   Thins with mineral spirits if it's absolutely necessary.  Don't thin unless you HAVE to.  I apply like Darren suggests (or was it Russell???)).  Ignore the directions.  Spray both surfaces, let dry for a day, then position (both pieces dry lets you move around at will), then re-activate with a heat gun.  Works a treat!  Holds damn near forever!

What do you lay the foam and vinyl together after a day of waiting and heat the outside of the vinyl with heat? Or lift the. Into and heat the glue directly?

I don't laminate then install.  I put up the foam on the hull, followed with the vinyl.  If the hull was very flat, then you could laminate first, then install, but as we mariners all know, if there's a curve, the vinyl will want to crease.  So, to get the curve all good. I put up the foam first.  Let cure for a day, then vinyl. 

NOTE to ALL: spraying glue inside a boat will not only get you high as a kite and ruin your lungs, it creates a deadly explosive environment.  Wear a respirator (Home Depot sells one with VOC filters) so you don't lose your sense of reality.  Open every hatch and porthole that exists, and use two fans - one blowing in, and at the other end, one blowing out.  Do NOT let the fumes build up.  Stop and let the air change periodically.
