Sealing

Postby T-MAN » Wed Oct 03, 2007 6:51 pm

:help: Im not much of a welder, but am planning on going to shool for it next year. So, i need advice on what the best product is to "seal" up some of the seams near the back end of my boat. Dosnt leak too bad, but i have 2 bilge pumps im going to be running(maybe 3 :huh: ) just to be safe. I am looking fo rsomething that will seal the back corners without leaking a whole lot. I am going to have to keep my boat in for most of the season cause i dont have a trailer. Thanks alot guys. Aprechieate the help

Gluv-it. Check with some of the Marine supply stores up there. I guess it's pretty pricey, but it'll be cheaper than welding it. Might want to ask on the boats page, or do a search for Gluv-It for more details.

not for nothing clutch but i remember going to welding school with you and thats not the attitude to have. just because you might be expensive it dosent mean all of us cant do a little side work to buy more 3 1/2 in. shells. :wink:

Sorry, forgot about that. I just don't have access to an aluminium welder, so I kind of forget.
T-man, send meganzer commander a PM, he might be able to help you out.

I had the same problem, i used roofing tar. sounds stupid but it worked great. Worked so good i put some down the center of the front of the boat (vbottom) to help protect it. Just give it some time in the sun
