I made my pontoon boat deck a one piece unit with a 12" overlap between a 10' and 8' marine grade plywood. Then joined both halfs with bisquicks for 8' wide. All pieces sealed both sides with 2 coats of Totalboat penetrating epoxy.

I used Thixo Wood to fill and level water damaged, removable wood flooring in my dinghy. Sitting water after rains loosened and delaminated some of the knots in the original floor. This cause lifting of the surrounding areas. Thixo Wood performed very well, allowing excellent work time to allow working the product into the damaged areas. It's curing time was about 3 days to a better than original hardness. It sands easily and takes a primer and finish coat of Total Boat easily. Highly recommend the product and the help received from Jamestown Distributors.

I used the trick. It is cold in Ohio. I warmed up the tube before dispensing. And the application into gaps and scarfs went much faster and better than expected. And while on the edge of the temp range this morn the Thixo is setting up nicely. Very pleased.

I had a water issue that settled on wood that caused detereation of the wood. This product filled the void perfectly.

I was gluing sheets of plywood by myself. This allowed me to not worry about potlife time and was able to get everything positioned and clamped and cleaned up before it started to set. Also the color is alot lighter than west fairing pecan chips, so it blended with my Okume real well. Also I can use it without the nozzle for small batches to do the general fills and patches and still have the same consistency and color. Cant say enough good things about this. Set up time is alot longer, which is not a bad thing.

Bought a powerful 18x gun to dispense the epoxy. Used for three small projects and still have half of it left and it will keep. Bought extra mixing tubes/applicators (inexpensive and terrific).

This is a great product. I have an old Historic Farm that I have been working and reworking on for many years. My recent project is a new set of sliding barn doors. At 78 inches wide and 140 inches tall it was a joy figuring out how to make them as strong and as solid as a Sherman tank. I used several tubes of the brown colored THIXO so I could see where to sand and some of the transparent that I had in stock. This is the perfect solution for many "carpentry" type efforts. It bonds well, can be sanded or painted. 10 Stars on this product from me.

I purchased these to do assorted tasks on a sailboat Pocket Ship I am building. I tried using them with the caulking gun that I had, but that didn't work very well. It was too difficult to press and get the epoxy out. You need to purchase a heavy duty gun. The "Caulking Gun, Heavy Duty Professional" that JamesTown sells works great! Part number NBC-250. I have used the epoxy on a few tasks. I am very pleased with the consistency of the epoxy. It made for a very smooth fillet. The epoxy is multi-use depending on how much you use. Small jobs should work fine, but purchase additional tips for it. The tips can only be used once.
