      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

  1. Good Morning, I am restoring an older boat with numerous holes in the transom where assorted sensors and other equipment were mounted on the transom. I have removed the equipment and want to plug the holes with the Thixo I bought from JD, will this be acceptable ? What prep do I have to do to paint/gelcoat over the filled holes ?
  2. I have replaced the Stringers in my boat. In an attempt to waterproof the new stringers I coated them with total boat penetrating epoxy. I have read where people are able to gelcoat over epoxy that has been cleaned of amine blush and sanded. From limited knowledge I think Gelcoat is a polyester product .......... So can i layup fiberglass and csm/biax to tab the prepared (washed and sanded) epoxy coated stringers ? Is there an added step ? or do I have to stick with 5:1 for the tabbing. and encapsulating , after also cleaning and sanding. .........
