    Default Hull repair recommendation

    Damaged my hull last year when I hit some rocks. Need a recommendation on what material to use to complete repairs.

    There does not seem to be any leaking so I think the hull is sound structurally. Tapping around the damage produces a solid sound. All of the damage is below water line so I am no concerned with finish quality as I will just paint over the repair. I think I can take care of most of the scrapes with epoxy filler. The worst gouge goes down several layers, though.

    I've seen a compound called PC-11 (A and B) that looks promising. It claims to be usable in cooler temps and even cures underwater. I plan to use that for the scrapes. But can I use it for the deep gouge? Or are layers of mesh or strands a better solution? I am located in NH and temps at this time of year are not conducive to curing.

    Default Re: Hull repair recommendation

    I'd use west system with the high strength (406) filler for the deep gouges...and then use 407 for the final layer...

    make sure the gouges are DRY before starting...West system has a guidebook on their www site...
