. There are some puttys that are epoxy based as well and some of these you can use under water as I found out when I had a leak in my Kio filtration system a few years back. And it was Fish safe!
I think I'll pass on that, last time they were here they took me away in a helicopter at gunpoint! Don't wish to repeat the experience, the boat can stay broken before I go down that road!!!
I've found a waterproof repair epoxy putty in a shop that seems to be designed for this sort of repair, so that seems to be the best option till I can get some proper orange gelcoat and then I'll do it properly at a later date - probably when I take it out some time during the summer to do the proper job on the tubes when the weather is warmer.
Why didn't I think to order some gelcoat repair with the #kin seat from Humber - that was only shipped a week ago....
jwalker, not so much making a meal out of things as wanting to make sure it is done properly. Living in a remote place you also get to see lots of things that have been f***ed up by somebody who thought they had half an idea of what to do but didn't. Which is why it is great to be able to ask for advice on here to make sure I at least have the right ideas, if not the right technique (as the actress said to the archbishop)
