Filling/Sealing Holes with Thixo

2 posts in this topic

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 ?

After the Thixo has cured, wash with water in case there is any amine blush, sand smooth and clean well with acetone.  Then you can apply gel coat or prime and paint.
