Does anyone know what the "putty" is around the main bulkhead and over the mastbeam. Is thickened epoxy a adequate substitute?
Thanks.

I used thickened epoxy to fill the gaps. There are some grey epoxy type adhesives that looked similar but I stuck with what I already had. Marine Tex maybe similar to what is there already.

I would guess the old putty is thickened fiberglass resin.Thickened epoxy is probably fine.I mix it with cabosil, milled glass powder and chopped glass strands. It ends up very hard and strong.Cabosil is fumed silica. Microballons can be used to thicken the epoxy, but won't be as strong.Avoid breathing Cabosil dust as it is very harmful to health. Tim

Thanks for your responses. I thought it was probably polyester or vinylester also. I was ready to go with the high density epoxy filler from West Systems but wanted to check before the final application.Thanks again On Thursday, March 23, 2017 1:15 PM, "Tim tim_klynn@...
