I have read through some searched items and found many different answers, some have used 5200, some marine tex.....What should I use to glue down my coco tunnel skin? if marine tex, what kind?

I think either one will work. Lots of us have used 5200 regular or quick cure. You can buy a large tube of it at Home Depot, or even Wally World. Make sure you use gloves no matter what you use, because the stuff is evil and won't come off!
And by the way, A++ for doing a little legwork before posting! I like this guy already...

I have done four three with 5200 FC and one with west systems epoxy all are holding great.

if I go the epoxy route, what sticks best to the SMC?

A couple more options....
This is what I've used on 2 reinforcements.
It's super strong stuff but has a short working time, 5-10 minutes on the medium set...you've got to get it right the first time. It can be used in a standard caulking gun, but you will want a powered gun to make it easier to push the material through the mixing tip. Putting the tube in the freezer for awhile will give you a little more working time before it sets up. I used 1-1/4 tubes to do the reinforcement on the SHO.
Here's one more that Bruce at Riva recommended to me. He said it's pretty much the same stuff Yamaha uses to bond hulls together.
