Re: 3M Marine High Strength Repair Filler

Wow, you are right. The label on the can reads "Fiberglass Resin" and, upon checking the ingredients, I see polyester resin. Thanks for the education. I need to learn to read ingredients more closely before shooting off my mouth.

Now I have to eat my smart aleck comments, along with my hat.

I think one good kick and it will pop out or at least crack.
Missed that bit.

Definitely can't fill a big hole with filler.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

google Wet Dry 700 - it is a kevlar - feldspar reinforced epoxy paste that can even be applied underwater. (has saved a number of sinking boats and leaking swimming pools)
