Re: Encapsulated Keel?
I thought every one knew what bog was, maybe it an Aussie thing!...It can be polyester resin or epoxy resin, thickend with talc or micro balloons. mainly used for fairing or leveling. Also a great glue. Can be bought in two part cans, but that is expensive.
Hadn't heard that term in that context before, but I'd gotten the gist of it..
We have similar products here, of course, including short and long strand filled polyester fillers, often called 'carpatch' that can be used to good effect as well.
