    Probably best to contact Duratec tech. dept. directly, they are very helpful. They are owned by Hawkeye Industries Inc. located in Bloomington Ca. Here's their contact info.

    Did you add any acetone to the mixture? If you did, that will effect (slow) the catalyst requirement for mixture ratio. Maybe spray the area with pva and let it sit for a couple days. If you can warm the gel coated area with the sun or other means it may help as well to get the material to completely cure out. Good luck.
