Re: using 3M marine premium filler

...........................West systems 205 vs Marine Tex

Compression yield. 11,400psi...........8,700psi
Tensile strength.......7,900psi.......... 4,000psi
Cost.......................$40/qt.............$120/qt. (the difference gets worse as the quantities get smaller)

Plus you can control the thickness of West, it can be put into syringes to inject in small holes, change the fillers to make everything from faring compound to structual glue.

Sorry for all the periods, I needed them to get things to line up right.
