Re: Bow Eye?

Two comments regarding the above posts.

1. I agree that 5200 is not the best caulk to use for the bow eye. Use only for things that will never have to be taken off. I would use Lifecaulk.

2. Polyester resin is definitely cheaper than epoxy resin, but epoxy is a much better choice for repairs. Polyester does not adhere nearly as well as epoxy does and for small jobs the cost difference is small.
