Yes there are less expensive alternatives, but you can't go wrong with total boat products!

Great for final coat to cure laminating resin or structural repair putty. Great for mixing thickened resin that you want to sand. Doesn't clog up sanding pads when sanding.

Working in colder weather switching from Apoxsee resin to the polyester resin made a huge difference

Let me preface by saying I've used epoxy on other boat projects and I do love Total Boat epoxies. This rebuild of a really old boat was cost prohibitive to use just epoxy, as many gallons will be needed. After dithering for far too long, I bought the bullet and ordered Total Boat polyester resin. Gotta say, I'm loving it. The wet out on 1708 is very quick. With epoxy, you really have to work to wet it out due to the thicker viscosity. Total Boat polyester resin seems to just soak in with minimal working. That's great to have when you're under a time crunch and a lot of cloth to wet out before it starts to gel. This, granted, is only my second brand of polyester resin to try. But I am really liking it so far. ITs a bit scary figuring out the MEKP ratios at first, not as easy as just counting pumps of epoxy, or measuring in cups. But, a few quarts in, you get the "feel" of it, and you're wetting out glass quick. I'd not hesitate to recommend it to other do it yourself, weekend warriors, and others that are refurbishing/totally reconstructing old boats, or making repairs or changes to any boat. Plus, there are tons of videos, look at Tales form a Shipwright, and Boatworks Today on YouTube for inspiration and "how to's."

Other than the waxy finish dulling my bright colors i know the wax will help protect and seal the surface to hopefully help it to survive the brutal Northern Maine Weather.
