Great for old sailboats


Used this resin on my old sailboats' interior and exterior. Since polyester resin was used to build the boat, it works great. Use protective clothing and a mask. It has strong fumes. I followed Andys' suggestions at Boatworks Today when I applied it.




I highly recommend this product.


I'm not a professional at working with fiberglass but I have learned enough to know that quality resins and glass makes any job easier. I have tried a lot of different types of resins in the past most driven by cheaper prices. For the money total boat resin is the best I have found.

Mixes right lives up the cure time before it shows signs of gelling up. Clean up with acetone.

Laminating resin didn't remain tacky


I have used JD products extensively in the past and all have surpassed expectations. This gallon of laminating resin, however, turned rock-hard/solid after about 12 hours. I followed the activator (MEKP I think) instructions to the letter...exact number of drops per oz, and the temps were around 70F. I have used JD resin, West Marine resin, Bondo resin, etc so I'm very familiar with finish resin, laminating resin, etc and application. Two stars because, as a finish resin, the product would have worked great, but this was supposed to be a laminating resin. I was able to sand up the final 'lamination' (now really hard), and zero resin transferred to the sandpaper...generally laminating resin will gum up coarse grit sandpaper. I'm speculating this was just a batch or lot of resin that was mis-labeled as laminating resin, but was actually finish resin. I contacted JD and they offered to send over a replacement gallon of laminating resin which was great, but I declined, as I was able to make the 'laminating' resin work by coarse sanding it to prep for the finish layers.I will buy from JD in the future, but just be cautious if you leave the final 'laminating resin' layer overnight to finish with a 'finishing resin' coat that the 'laminating resin' may be 'finish resin' and require a coarse sanding.

Total boat Poly resin


I'm giving it 5 stars because ive never had an issue with this resin, also i am not a professional in fiberglass boat repair or fiberglass in general. i cannot compare it to other resins on the market because this is the only one ive ever used. i believe the price point is fair, quality seems to be very good, i have no complaints about the resin. ive almost exclusively used it in cooler temps with no problems. as for JD, customer service is great, shipping is great. cant complain and will continue to purchase their products.

Poly resin


I have always liked your products. They are good quality and good price. I will be using the resin to reinforce 1/48 scale of an R/C model of the USS Constitution

Great for Laminating


Works great when you are trying to build-up/apply multiple layers with no sanding between layers.

Update on Basic Directions


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.
