I thinned with 10% acetone before adding hardener, then spray finished the fixed keel on my Capri 14.2, using Preval spray cans, also available at West Marine (super cheap, considering). I sprayed three coats and, although they were thin, they gave good coverage. The spray unit was easy to use, although it's difficult to keep things from getting messy. I'm very pleased with the overall result. The patching I had to do no longer shows--the new gelcoating actually looks pretty professional. The gelcoat sanded easily, then buffed up nicely with wet and dry 800, and it adhered very successfully to the old gel and to the Formula 27 resin filler I used to patch the keel. Good stuff!

I made a repair on my rudder and dagger board. It worked although some of the epoxy repair underneath still could be seen peeking through. The product worked easily, but I needed a lot of coats.
On a previous batch I used to repair scratches on my mast coating, the product took on a pink hue, which didn't match the rest of the mast. On a earlier repair of the daggerboard the product turned into a sticky ball when tiny amounts of catalyst were added, boy that was a shocker. So of all my experiences with this product this was the best.

        Does exactly what it claims. Like most gel/fiber projects, good prep work will make your life easy. If work is vertical, I recommend wax paper or Mylar film.

            Comments about Waxed, Non-Laminating, Finish Gelcoat:

            I expected this to be a thicker gel-like compound. It is more like paint when mixed. Since I had a fairly deep gouge in my hull, I required several coats to build up to the original surface level. Once finished, it looks very good.

                  Went on following directions and hardened up quickly as expected. Sanded the area well and cleaned with acetone before applying the gel coat. We'll see how it holds up over time.
