    I find Marine tex is not up to the task, does the same job, but is brittle. Sea-Going Epoxy will give a little, as there is some flexing in the hull, helping keep your intake sealed.

    I fully agree with you. Marine tex drys very hard.

    Also clean up with Sea Goin is with water, Marine tex...not.

    and thanks for the link Busby.

    Sea-goin has a package date stamped on the side of the can. Ask what it is before purchase. Even if unopened, it has a shelf life. We don't buy any that is over 3 months old. It gets harder to mix and doesn't fill the voids as well. If your deal isn't a max effort, the harder mixing is the only issue. The older it is, the shorter shelf life it exhibits upon opening and the slower cure time under certain conditions. Your results may vary. TIMINATOR
