Filling seam where transom meets outboard well

2 posts in this topic

Got around to digging out all the old fiberglass filler type  that was under the aluminum edging that surrounded the outboard engine well. The boat is a 27' Ocean Master CC. Ive got about a 1/4" gap that needs to be filled. Was thinkin of using epoxy thickened with fiberglass filler to peanut butter consistency and filling the void. Then wanted to gelcoat but thought gelcoat won't stick to epoxy.

I'm all ears, is epoxy what i should be using or should i use 3M 4000 sealant? Will gelcoat stick to epoxy? Any special prep?

If you are going to use gelcoat to finish the repair, I'd recommend 3M Premium Filler.  It's a  vinyl-ester filler designed for fiberglass repair work above or below the waterline.
