Re: Why use Silvertip Epoxy?

Can anyone state, in plain language, what makes the high end epoxies better? I am thinking something like X is 10% stronger than Y. Or X will stand 10% more deflection than Y before failure. Fallguy says Marine Epoxies HDT is too low. I hate abbreviations and needing to remember what they mean.

Re: Why use Silvertip Epoxy?

I have used a bunch of different epoxies. I like the Marine Epoxy as well as any of them. The fast hardner will blush so you have to look out for it. If you use the slow I understand it will not blush. The Silvertip is great as you can go straight to Easy Fair with no wait. I was digging around in t...

Re: FS13 Lolyboat

Re: Fuel Tank For My XF20>

The portable plastic tanks last 10 years or more being outside and abused. I would think a tank out of the weather and not getting knocked around would last much longer.
