      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. I've been rebuilding the cabin top area around the maststep on an S2 7.9 and things have been going smoothly until now. Applying gel coat over my epoxy repairs; gel went on easy enough and hardened up well over most of the repair but there are a few small blotches where the gel did not set up. These blotches appear wet, and are still tacky even after 24 hours. 90% of the surface is set. Should I wait some more, or did I do something wrong in the prep that is preventing the gel from setting? Lay up for the repair was balsa core, glass, 5 to 1 resin (Total Boat) surface filler where needed of resin and West 410 followed by much sanding and many wipedowns.
