Epoxy. (That is to say real epoxy, not the five minute stuff).

as cr1 has asked it will depend on your project. not sure about boats etc but for outdoor projects then i would go for purbond. again depending on the size of your glue ups you can get different open and cure times with this product.
you might find out more about what you need here

There is water resistant and water proof.

Water resistant brands are things like Titebond and polyurethane glues. They cannot be immersed in water.

Epoxy and plastic resin glues (DAP Woodweld) are water proof and can be immersed in water.

Don’t forget resin glue.

It’s bettter than epoxy in one regard; temperature resistance.
