I'm getting ready to glue the skeg onto my glued-lap sailboat. I thought I'd give one of the caulk-gun thickened epoxy products a try.
Since the area where the skeg goes is made of the two garboards meeting at a slight angle, I planed a flat surface for the skeg to land on.
This means exposed ply "end-grain." Normally, I'd wet out with neat epoxy and then do my thickened batch to avoid a starved joint.
I'm thinking I will do the same for the Thixo, but wondered if it's not necessary. Can this stuff be used without neat epoxy prep? I wrote to the JD website, but thought I'd ask here too.
