West System (epoxy) and West Marine (retail boating equipment) are completely unrelated companies. Pretty sure west system will be sticking around.

1/2" g10 seems super overkill for that, but I guess if you already have it use it. Otherwise would go 1/4". Any marine epoxy adhesive that you buy premixed or mix yourself will adhere well to g10.

Agreed on blackstone. If you plan to test each oil change buy a 6 pack. They will send you 6 prepaid test kits for a discount instead of having to request a kit and pay each time you send one in.

I would hope they would just leave a voicemail. As many others my phone doesn't ring for callers not in my contacts, but I still check the voicemails since I can just read the transcribed text.

Figure if you're going to drive all the way to the Cape from Connecticut you might as well actually go to the Cape instead of stopping when you are 95% of the way there.

Don't see any reason you shouldn't repair that with epoxy if you are going to paint over it. I would grind it out a little before filling, don't just apply filler as is.
