FSMike, no I wasn't aware of that but I did use the wrong name. It was the West Systems I read as I have it in my bookmarks and jsut checked. Good thing for me to know and thanks.
So, from what I have read, vinylester/polyester is ok and probably adequate for my small repairs but epoxy would be a lot better. Got it....thanks to all of you and I'll be ordering the epoxies needed for the repairs. I learned more than I expected to from this thread. Whooda thunk it?
