Liquid Rubber Asphault

Post by Extreme » 22 Jun 2016, 14:46

Think I fixed the leaks in my aluminum boat
I tightened up the rivets with my sons help and put some marine JB weld on as well
I want to deal up all the ribs and rivets in the boat and was thinking the rubber asphalt brushed on in the inside would work?
I sprayed some rubber rocker guard but dosnt seem thick enough

I'd use a flexible epoxy product like G-flex by West Systems - see this post here: http://forum.tinboats.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=40954

Just note that any epoxy-based product MUST be top-coated with a paint, as bare epoxy is very prone to degradation by the sun's UV rays.

I wouldn't use that rubber asphalt stuff as in my experience, it doesn't 'stick well' when subject to varying thermal cycles.

That stuff just makes a mess and a later headache IMO....
