I found what seemed like a million tiny voids in the gel coat on the bottom of my rebuild. Best repair that I could come up with was removing the gel coat, sealing and fairing. I just used 80 grit...

The rod holders are from Attwood. I thought about going with Gemlux, but I like the old school oval base and the black liners.

Foolish mortal, thinking a rebuild could be done in a...

Thatís unfinished foam. You need to seal it before you even consider finish. You could cover foam with resin and chopped strand, or you could rout out the foam and fill with thickened resin before...

3/4Ē is a lot of variance. Are you sure? A single layer of 1708 is a bit less than 1/16Ē. Do all of your seams line up, or did you stager the laps? You definitely need to knock down those high...

I used 1 tube for leaningpost and console. That was 2) 1/4Ē beads on both flanges. As I recal, I used 4 tubes for my hull/deck seam. The stuff has a limited shelf life, so only buy what you can use...
