Best glue for timber

What is the best glue/adhesive to use?

I wanna stick hardwood timber decking to a plywood step surrounding a bath.

I think that trying to drill and screw each one would be too messy.
There are numerous brands out there Gripfill, Stixlikesh*t , Gorilla glue.

Any idea what is best to use?
There will be moisture involved in the long run

Ever build in yellow bottle or evo stik in a green bottle are fine.

You could put a few oval nails, or even panel pins to keep it in place

If there's a chance of moisture you could use the Evo Stik Resin W (blue bottle) exterior wood glue.

As with any glue read the label to make sure it suits the application though.

Epoxy resin, believe me I trust my life in it and the bond is stronger than the wood it's self.

Here is two lengths of 8' x 1/4" butt jointed with it to make one sheet.

Thanks for that.

I will sort through the recommendations and see what will work.

Epoxy Resin sounds good.

Where is the best place to get that?
Builders providers or the likes of CH Marine in Cork?

Yep ch marine will have it and you can also get small amounts in woodies, B&Q and so on where it comes in what looks like a double barrelled syringe.

Cascomite, it comes in powder form and mixed with water, nothing will shift it when it dries.
