Re: Rub Rail

What type of screws are best used to attach the 3 piece rub rail on a 13' Whaler? For example, does it matter if they're flat head, pan head, other?

Re: Painting over TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat Primer

Tahoewhaler,

How did you apply the totalboat wet edge paint? With a sprayer or using a roll and tip method?

WTB: Combined Sidelight and Chock

Looking for an original combined sidelight lamp and chock like the attached picture for a 13 Whaler. I know they are available at Speciality Marine, but was hoping to find some for less.

Re: Painting over TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat Primer

Thanks for the information about amine blush that occurs when epoxy cures. I didn't see any warnings about amine blush in the product literature, but I did find a Total Boat You Tube video about amine blush and how to remove it with soap, water and scrubbing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5J6PIt4...

Fiberglass repair for 13 Sport

Recently I purchased a 13-foot Boston Whaler boat with hull [stencil] number 14329. The port side has a punched-in hole about the size of your fist. Should the damaged section be cut out before applying the fiberglass repair or should the damaged area just be pushed in a bit? Is West System expoy wi...
