Works well
By Eric from Portland Oregon

Verified Purchase

The pluses. It works well. The minuses. Requires accurate mixing if you are not using it all at once. It also is thick so you need to have thinner on hand.

may buy unless a better option is found
By jim from Arkansas

The gallon can was bent up all around, and the contents very lumpy. While there was no apparent leak-evidence on the can itself, the contents appeared to have lost some of its carrier fluids. Two facts indicated this to me. One the lumpy condition of the contents and the thickness of the product even after extended mixing with an electric mixer on a power drill. One other fact was in the amount of area this gallon of the product covered. I needed to order and wait for an additional quart of the product to finish the barrier coating of the bottom of a 23 foot O'Day sailboat. I also noticed when mixing and applying the product from the additional quart differences. The new Quart was of the normal viscosity and free of lumps.

unfinised area of bottom requirieng a quart in addition to the gallon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I would never buy this again.
By Harvey from Lebanon, Me

Verified Purchase

Followed all instructions to the letter. Called for tech support. Nevertheless with every application (by small HD foam roller)(thinned as directed) it left a rough surface (very much like Rino spray-on bed liner for pickup truck bed) that had to nearly totally removed to get a semi-smooth surface. If you want a Rino bed liner finish, this is your product. Otherwise, steer clear.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

This primer is tough and finish is nice. The kit comes with everything you need I'm a DIY GUY and after a grueling job of removal of bottom paint I chose this primer as the finish for the bottom I trailer my boat and wanted white without the cost of gel coat love the outcome.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Worked great.
By Bill from Onalaska, WI.

Verified Purchase

I used this to repair a "ding" I put in my rudder after my son had turned the rudder while in its up position into the spinning prop on the outboard. Fortunately the damage didn't penetrate through the fiberglass, but it was fairly deep. As I worked on the repair I found that the fairing was also finding imperfections in the surface of the rudder that I had not realized were there. Next spring I may completely re-fair both sides of the rudder. It did shrink a little so I had to use more than one coat. My only wish is that you could put bottom paint right on the fairing instead of needing to put on a coat of undercoat. Thus 4 stars.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

This is the stuff to get
By Filda Rudda from Bristol, RI

Verified Purchase

The high performance is perfect for for addressing delamination problems, if they're limited to small areas. The advantage of the slow hardener is that when injected into tight area it will seep into cracks before hardening. The bottles and pumps are made so that the correct ration of epoxy and hardener are dispensed using the same amount of pumps.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
