Repair Question

Postby waterman2012 » Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:07 am

Hey everyone. I have a question regarding ding repair.
I have a starboard Go with a small crack on the bottom. It doesn't look like it's broken through the surface and appears superficial. None the less I'd like to cover it with epoxy (or whatever) to prevent it from getting worse during use.
What Im asking is what product should I use for this? Is there something I can buy in a small amount (also where to buy) and that is safe to use on the board? I've read that some resins etc will harm the board so want to use the right thing. I've read that you can use West Systems resins but I m not looking to buy large amounts of resin and hardener for such a small repair. Any info appreciated. Thanks

I used Gflex on my last repair and I worked very well.

I bought it at Port of Whitby marine supplies.
