    Comments about TotalBoat Polyester Laminating Resin:

    I wrote a review this AM after doing a ruinous wet layup. I repeated what I had read in the reviews stating what the gradients on the pipette meant. I was wrong as was whomever wrote the other review. I performed an experiment and found that a teaspoon is about 180 drops from the pipette. Thus, I thought the other gentleman must have been using an eye dropper or something with a larger orifice than the provided pipette. The "1" gradient on the pipette is around 40 drops. Do the math - go from there.

    Comments about TotalBoat Polyester Laminating Resin:

    This had excellent flow and mixed well. This was much better than a popular brand I bought at the auto supply store. It can be tricky to measure properly. The first gallon I purchased did not come in a kit, and I ran out of hardener, possibly due to measuring difficulties. The droppers included in the kits made this much simpler and more accurate.

            Comments about TotalBoat Polyester Laminating Resin:

            The first few gallons I ordered cam in a blue color. The blue batch gelled and cured out in the time specified on the container label. The last few orders I received poly in a pink color. This pink batch took twice the catalyst to get the same gel time. And it took a good 18 hours to cure out.
            My advice, mix a test batch when you receive a new order of poly. Depending on the age of poly and the batch, it does not always react to the catalyst consistently.

                    This was my first time fiberglassing. I own a Formula 242LS and have been using the swim platform as the support for a 150 quart live baitwell. Needless to say I would have found the baitwell and swim platform 30' under if I hadn't been proactive!

                    The resin went on like a breeze, hardened like a rock with plenty of time to message and is now bullet proof! I wish I had taken before and after pictures! THERE WON'T BE A NEXT TIME!

                    Note: I can't take ALL the credit! Chet helped me. Actually, he did a lot! BUT, he was 100% satisfied as to the ease of application and final results!

                    Thanks Chet, I owe you dinner!!
