Can or should Git Rot be used in open holes where cooler brackets once were. I would like to seal any wet wood with GIT ROT then fill with Marine Tex. Waiting on gel coat from Spectrum col0r to finish. Will GIT ROT negatively affect foam ?

yes, and I learned that the hard way. The epoxy (west systems) will seal and cure rotted wood areas that you need and will not effect foam but the git rot will melt and smoke. Dont use it.

Thanks.. Unfortunately i already used it for the holes where cooler was tied down infront of Center Console. Dripped product into holes.

Git Rot is nothing but a low viscosity epoxy. Epoxy is fully compatible with polyurethane foam. It should not do anything to the foam in a whaler.

Thanks.. I think this addictive forum is making me a bit paranoid. My first boat and I am trying to get it cleaned up before it hits the water. previous owner took a lot of short cuts ie Pressure treated 2x4's to raise RPS,non stainless screws, open screw holes on deck, poor care for the teak. I appreciate all the advise and hope to add some as I go.
