          Comments about System Three QuikFair Fairing Compound:

          So far I've used the System Three quick fairing compound to level out the bottom of an old bath tub and to smooth out the top of a dried tree trunk we're using as a table on the deck. It's really easy to work with but the 2:1 mix rate is a bit hot and the working time is 5-10 minutes before 'dragging'. The instructions on the tubs say you can reduce it to 100:44 so I started using a scale to measure out better proportions and 100:44 seems to work really well for me allowing just that extra little bit of time to smooth out the product and makes for less sanding and finishing. Great stuff!

                I am ordering more today! We found this fairing compound to mix well (being two to one it could be measured visually) laid out like butter, and dried quickly. Sanding after 3 hours is recommended, we sanded after two hours without any problem at all and it was a pleasure. We're looking forward to putting primer on it today.

                  Comments about System Three QuikFair Fairing Compound:

                  I use west system almost exclusively for rebuild/repairs. Mixing product and adding fillers is easy, but time consuming. This stuff is easy to mix, consistency is perfect every time. Dry time is 4hrs, allowing 2 coats in a day. It is easy to sand. Do not mix large quantities. As with any epoxy product it will have an exothermic reaction, the bigger the quantity you mix the faster it will heat up and dry. I took a chunk about half the size of a baseball that had dried on my mixing board and tried smashing it with a hammer to test it's strength. 22oz hammer, took several whacks to crack this stuff. It has similar strength to mixing West System epoxy and adding their 404 structural filler. It is just way faster to mix and way easier to sand. Remember epoxy over polyester, never polyester over epoxy!!

                  This product is great for fairing the bottom of the boat. It can be used to fill in cracks, gaps, dings and splits. It is also carvable as well as shapable if you let it cure until it is plyable. I have used this to smooth the bottom of my boat and to fix the damaged lapstrakes. I did this by building up the product after each application. Remember to sand in between applications. THIS IS AN AWESOME PRODUCT AND EASY TO USE!

                  Faired the bottom diagonal planking seams on my 18' cold molded Hydrotec plywood runabout. Mixes up well and lays down smooooth. Sandable shortly after laydown without any pinholes commonly found in other fillers. Used the weight method for mixing ratio of smaller quantities with no problems. Haven't seen any problems to date.

                    I fill screw holes and small cracks or imperfections in wood plank on a boat. Goes on like peanut butter but is a bit more difficult to sand out fair than some of the other more expensive products.
