TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits

TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper & cures stronger than industry-leading penetrating epoxies. It contains no VOCs and has no smell.

This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, or sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold & mildew. Penetrating Epoxy works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together, sealing an unfinished, porous wood surface from the inside out. Once cured, this epoxy is 100% waterproof.

Surfaces may be painted or varnished over after light sanding. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy may be applied by brush, roller, or injected via syringe. Acetone can be mixed with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume to double the penetrating power.

Choose from Traditional (suited for 65 F and warmer) or Cold Weather (40 to 65 F) formulas.

Bonus: Each order includes 2 stir sticks, 2 QT paint pots, and 1 pair of latex gloves.


Cleanup is easy. Wear latex gloves, wash off with soap and water. No solvents required.

APPLICATION NOTE: The wood must be bare and unfinished. Also, TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first.

TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy is perfect for use during the colder seasons. Compared to our traditional TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy, our Cold Weather formula offers similar performance characteristics, but cures completely and reliably in cooler temperatures. Its tack-free properties also allow you to sand sooner.

WARNING: TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, brittleness, and improper curing.

  • Traditional formula - 65-90°F
  • Cold Weather formula - 40-65°F

Use For:

  • Sealing open wood pores
  • Glues wood fibers back together

Highly effective


Great epoxy - it will take punky rotten wood, and make it solid and hard as a rock. I also coat it on all new woodwork I use for boat projects. Add 2 coats of spar varnish, and it looks really great. If all boat wood was painted in this epoxy, there would be far fewer boat repair projects.All the TotalBoat branded products I've used provide great results, and usually cost less. Believe it or not, I actually don't even work for JD...






First time I have used this product. I used it to repair a 90 year old window with significant rot. I mixed the parts per instructions then thinned it 20% with denatured alcohol. This penetrated the punky wood very well. After a 2 day cure it was totally solid and ready for the epoxy putty and wood blank repair. This product is far superior to the one part acetone based product you find in the local stores. Now we shall see how long it holds up.

First time user


Product was purchased for use on wood Radio Control boats. On first use, it clearly penetrates the 3/16" 3-ply very well, nearly all the way thru. For my use, it works better than West Systems 205. Have already recommended this product to my fellow RC boat builders.

For the cost, a good product.


Normally I use Smith's.I thought why not give this a try on a Simmons sea skiff I am rebuilding/restoring.Not a,viscous as Smith's unless Mek is added.Be watchful of the quantities mixed up especially if using the cold weather formula in warmer temps.I'd purchase it again.

Transom repair


Had a 1987 Starcraft with moderate to severe wood rot. Did not want to pull the entire transom out so I heard about your product and did a little research on the mechanics in using the product. Only bought one gallon to see if it would work. So I removed the aluminum transom cap by cutting around the engine. Made a jig to cover both sides of the transom and drilled vertical holes 3/8 one inch apart and poured the cool temperature export into the holes I drilled. I used about 1/2 gallon with same amount of acetone, making the epoxy penetrate easier and deeper penetration. Well the transom is as strong as virgin wood in all severe rot and the moderate rot I will do in the spring. This product is fantastic. The transom is solid and rapping on the transom is no longer hollow but is now solid. I will buy another gallon to complete the job this spring since the temperature is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. The remaining 1/2 gallon I gave to my neighbor to fix a wooden outdoor table.Just a great product is all I can say . Saved me a lot of money, time and anxiety.

The product is great even for a novice retired boat rebuilde


The transom was in bad shape but the penetrating epoxy was fantastic once you read the instructions and a little bit of you tube help as well. Transom is strong and waterproof and is 20 years old.Great product.

great product


I use the penetrating epoxy to harden & stabilize spalted wood for table tops. It brings out the color & gives a great base for a smooth finish.

Worked perfect, Easy to Use


This was my first time trying to repair a soft spot in the deck of my boat. I removed the panel and found rotted wood. just to make sure I was doing things correctly I called Jamestown and reps answered all of my questions and even gave me advice on how to complete the project. following the instructions and advice, the deck plate is not good as new.




I would buy this product again


JD including mixing cups and stir sticks with the order. Nice touch!
