    This short guide consolidates all the information which Andy presented in various videos and as such is invaluable. The flowchart & tables for resin selection are really useful. There is enough information in this guide to perform fiberglass repairs. However, if you want to see how it’s done before tackling a job, then watch the videos with the guide beside you & take notes. For example, reading the section on core removal & repair might lead you to think that this is a simple easy step but if you watch the video you will see that there is a lot of dirty hard work involved.

    We are teaching Torah through the use of fiberglass repair on sailboats. As a voluntary Outreach of our group we are limited by donated funds and have just started. I have been watching the videos now for almost 3 months. Some of the best information I have ever seen! So we’re getting our finances up for our next project a hunter 28. I am so looking forward to ordering this guide thanks for all the hard work you do Andy it’s wonderful YAH bless you!!

    G’day,

    Although it may of seemed short at first it has a wealth of knowledge. I currently brought a 14 ft guardian runabout as my first ever boat.

    Im currently 95% finished preparing my hull as I have removed the floor side wall fittings and various other tid bits due to rot.

    However due to all the conflicting Poly resin and epoxy resin searches I had no clue how to progress. Until now, your guide has helped me reach my decision and I thank you for your videos, absolutely fantastic and cant recommend this guide enough.

    Thanks mate!

    I am a teacher of 18 years, but math, not boat repairs. So all this is brand new and I find you to be an excellent teacher. Thanks so much.

    Recently I see more use of Total boat resins instead of West System. Is there a quality reason?
    Love your instructions.

      Hi Rudi! The quality of the two expoxies are very comparable but the Total Boat is much less expensive 🙂
