    Fiberglass & Resin

    I recently got a 96 GSX project that I am now working on to have for this summer. After scrubbing out inside of hull I found several cracks fwd. of left rear engine mount. There is no apparent damage ( scuffing, scraping or gouging ) on underside just below the cracks inside. I plan on on sanding, cleaning & laying on a couple plies of fiberglass & woven matting. My question is, will store bought resin & hardener work (NAPA, Advance Auto Etc. ) or should I spring for the more expensive West System resin? This will be a Rec. ridden ski, stock 787 engine etc. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    The Seadoo hull is built with Polyester resin so it will work, epoxy will of course be stronger and more expensive, for a small lob like that a small west system kit should be enough resin to do it . You may also consider looking at the G FLEX West system epoxy products, these have the added benefit of having some elasticity to them.

    I really like the west system because you also get the #404 filler to thicken the mix and lay it upside down if you need to,

    You can't go wrong with West System, it is however quite expensive, for a small project I say go for it, for those of us who use large amounts of resin per year there are better options such as US composites resin.
