    This is great stuff. I saw the demo at JD when it first came out and have been a fan ever since. It actually works as advertised. It mixes well, has a decent pot life, and the fumes are not noticeable. The consistency is between peanut butter and mayo, which means it can be used on vertical surfaces. 4 hour cure to sanding time is great. Used to fair and fill voids on Keel joint, hull surfaces, and finish off mounting holes in decks. Easy clean up from tools and extremities as well.

    I used this to fare a very old canoe that I restored. I was convinced that this the "right" product to use since it does not absorb water. That may be true. What I was not pleased with is how hard it became and how difficult it was to smoooth. It was almost untouchable with sanding and needed to be filed. Considering that the surrounding areas are soft cedar this created quite a challenge. I was not thrilled with this. I also applied a small amount on several low spots on the stems and later learned that my stem tacks could not penetrate it.
    I did make it work but the effort was greater than expected. I would likely not use this again. I certainly would not recommend it for a wooden canoe although there are others that do.
    The color is also very obnoxious. I would have preferred brown or even white to the odd pink tone.

            You have multiple choices for filling material in fiberglass. This Epoxy works well mixing ratio of tow to one is not difficult to eye ball. I used it at very low temperatures around 30 -40. It takes longer to harden but it's a chemical reaction --you can't stop it from hardening any more that you can prevent HI tide!

              Mixes and goes on just like bondo, But it was hard to sand. I waited a few days before I sanded , may have sanded easyer at 5 hour of cure time.

                My 45-yr old canoe sat out in the elements, which rotted the square-end wood and created a large crack in the fiberglass. I replaced the wood easily and applied the Quick Fair Compound, following your instructions to the letter. What a great product! I used my professional carpentering clamps and got a perfect result. It was easy to sand down for a good-looking finish. It took paint well. It should be good enough to last for years for whomever buys the canoe in the Spring! Thanks, Jamestown!

                    I am filling and fairing on a couple of different boats- one polyester/fiberglass, one wood/epoxy, and it works well on either material. I also used it directly on some foam core before glassing over it, and it seems to stick quite well to the corecell. It goes on much like "bondo", and is easy to work with and sand. It might be a little slow to cure in cooler weather.

                      I refinished the cabin of my 1966 Tartan 27 ft. fiberglass sailboat. I mixed a small amount of this product in a 3oz.cup at a time to cover MANY hairline cracks and gouges because it hardens quickly at high temperatures. This is one tough product. You want to use it sparingly. Once smoothed with a putty knife and later with sandpaper when dry (I did a lot of hand sanding as well as using electric sanders), it looks great under a coat of quality paint. It's worth spending the time with this product if you have a big job at hand.

                        I have used all of the different West fillers with their epoxy and this product falls between the low density fill and their light weight microballoon fill. But this product forms a nice no sag consistancy withouthaving to add powder to liquid which cures to a sandable surface in around 4 hours. I use a small weight scale to meter the ratios.

                        Good for creating a smooth surfaces on wood or fiberglass. It has minimal shrinkage save time refilling holes. I would avoid using this product where any type of strenght is required.

                          For a first time (and one time) boat builder this product was recommended by the designer. It is easy to work with in small batches. Spreads well with Bondo spreader and sands well. It is expensive so taking a few precautions to avoid waste is recommended. Just don't slap any extra on willy nilly as you'll just have to sand it off again!
