weatherproof wood glue

Hey,

I noticed that I need to do some glue work on my deck and it's obviously going to be outside. Last time I did something like this I think I used titebond (sp?) but this 4 traffic light town I live in doesn't seem to have any, Elmer's exterior glue is available however, the tite bond I can order online.

Opinions?

I have had great success with Gorilla glue in a wet environment.

Several years ago, my wife bought a used birdbath. Turns out it leaked from cracks caused by freezing. It would empty out in a few minutes. The total length of all the cracks would easily be 48".

Out came the Gorilla glue. I laid a bead over all the cracks, let it seep into them and it's still waterproof after all these years.

The Gorilla glue I use comes in a brown, which is more firm, white, which is more spongy, and a white wood glue which I have never used. I use the brown on my irrigation system, the white to sill around the handles on my gardening tools. Both are good products, but so is titebond.
