Great - can't wait to see the repair.... I wonder why 3M uses sells a polyester resin for repair vs. vinyl-ester. I know expoxy is strongest then vinyl...then polyester. MIskier indicated that MC uses Vinyl-ester when building. Please post lot's pic's building my library of methods for my project boat to come. .. found this video at jamestown distributors... http://www.jamestowndistributors.com..._1441&type=pla

being a nube to repair - does the patch need a backer of some sort to reinforces the repair? I mean - once you fill the whole do make a resin/glass patch larger than the hole to keep make it all strong? My thoughts are what happens to the joint where the new glass/resin meets the old laminated class and resin.

This is so much more interesting than what I do for a living...
