Amy thoughts on using Gel Magic instead of epoxy on bulkheads on a Pinguino? I have some West Six10 but not sure about compatibility with the System 3 epoxy on the hull and deck. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with it but a search tells me Gel Magic is epoxy (thickened). Likewise West Six10. You could confirm compatibility by contacting System 3.

Thoroughly roughen the surfaces the epoxy will be on with 80 grit and you should get good bonding. Bulkheads are wood, yes? Gel Magic is a good choice. Easy to use, and prethickened.
