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

A bit disappointed
By Mic from wI

Verified Purchase

I used this on a sanded section of aluminum diamond plate. The underside coated fine but after sanding and etching the top the coating would attach itself and I ended up with a mess. I did call and ask if sand blasting would be better but I was told to sand to 220 and etch then apply. The bottom side turned out great. The top not so much.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Great coverage , adheres very well . I used it as a top coat after i filled gouges and scratches in the gel coat on the bottom of the boat , It's been on for a little over a month and is holding up, doesn't stain easily from the intercoastal water . I don't anticipate any issues with this product

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
