  • Jb Wet Weld??

    Anybody ever use JB Wet Weld for repairs to fiberglass? I have a few chips on the hull, one appears to be the result of hitting a log. It is about 3/4" x 1 1/2" in size right on the vee of the hull at the waterline. Chipped away the outer layer but is solid and does not leak. Reading the claims of JB Wet Weld would lead one to believe this stuff should work quite well for this type repair. But I've never used it and was wondering if anyone else has had any experience with it.

    Thanks in advance for any input.

        JB Wet Weld may very well work just fine. But it appears as though no one here has used it on a boat.

        But there are dozens of iboat members (me included) who can tell you with 100% certainty that Marine Tex is the correct product to repair that damage. A little touch-up paint and you won't know its there.

          I certainly agree with the rest of the crew - Marine Tex should be your choice for this repair - http://www.marinetex.com/
