By gum it just gets mind numbing this vast selection of epoxy resins and resin expoxies, and polymer epoxy resins, co polymer resinpoxy and such. I just wanna fix a couple cracks in my hull and build a few additions to compliment my rather bare all glass boat. Don't spoze any of ya'll knows a decent enough brand of fiber glass resin that does it all and don't break the bank, could ya hep a bruther out?

Marine Tek makes a good product to patch gouges and such. Any marine epoxies will work for major repairs.

I've used tiger hair before with good results. Sands and works like bondo, with glass hair mixed. Different compound too, not pink. Ask the guy at the paint supply place, he can tell you better than I. I fixed softball sized holes in a canoe I was given. Mix, spread on tin foil, then apply. When it began to set, we peeled off the foil before it fully hardened, then let it finish curing. Sand and paint. Hope this helps.
